Just like last year, all participants in the Marathon Eindhoven will unconsciously receive additional support. The organization will place 42 km signs counting down along the route. "After 195 meters, the first signs will be placed: '42 km to go '. Every kilometer is deducted and we hope to create a psychological benefit for the participants. It looks easier when you see the number continuously smaller instead of larger. In addition, on each board is a short motivational quote." So light director Edgar de Veer. All events finish on the Vestdijk. That means every runner will see the km signs. As many runners like to see the standard 5 km signs and times, they will be kept along the trails.
The new KM signs were introduced in 2017 and were a huge succes. This year the concept has been further developed and all participants will be facilitated in advance with adjusted time schedules so they can calculate their expected split times on the bases of their expected pace or finish time in order to help them reach their personal dreamtime.
