Powered by TCS, it hosted over 45,000 runners.
TCS celebrated 30 years in the Netherlands in 2022 and has been the title sponsor of the Amsterdam Marathon since 2011. The event hosted over 45,000 runners from 131 countries in 2022 and has become one of the biggest and most popular marathons in Europe. The marathon’s picturesque course took runners through the capital city’s historic sights. Post kick-off, the event moved to the central arch of the Rijksmuseum, the Netherlands’ principal national museum. Runners continued along the banks of the Amstel River before entering the Vondelpark, Amsterdam’s largest and most popular municipal park.
The TCS Amsterdam Marathon official race app enabled participants to access features that enhanced the event experience. Downloaded 87,000 times, the app helped runners share their bib details, allowing friends and family to track their progress. They could also share and compare stats with other participants and get provisional race results after crossing the finish line. Runners and spectators shared their excitement with the world through the app, which also connected them to various social media sites.
Together we run
TCS is passionate about the well-being of our employees and the communities we participate in. Be it business, life, or running, we believe no one completes a journey alone, and the Amsterdam marathon encapsulates this belief. Every year, TCS running teams participate in the marathon; in 2022 alone, we had 35 teams taking part in the journey.
For a better world
The 2022 marathon was not only about fitness and fun. Thousands of runners ran for a bigger cause—to raise money for charity. Nearly €700,000 was raised for the official charity partner, the Amsterdam UMC Cancer Center. It aims to cure cancer by integrating world-class research with healthcare and education and creating new possibilities for patients.
Here’s to history, health, and well-being. Here’s to the TCS Amsterdam Marathon 2022!
