40,000 runners go for personal bests at NN Marathon Rotterdam 2018

The 38th NN Marathon Rotterdam will take place on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 April in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. This year, the NN Marathon Rotterdam will attract about 40,000 participants who will run a variety of distances. This includes 415 enthusiastic colleagues from NN Group, Nationale-Nederlanden, NN Investment Partners and Delta Lloyd and five athletes from the NN Running Team: Laban Korir, Mule Wasihun, Abera Kuma, Xolisa Tyali and new member Bashir Abdi. 

In addition to the full NN Marathon Rotterdam (42.195 km), which sold out in March, there are the quarter Marathon Rotterdam and the Business runs. On Saturday, the Kids Runs will take place (1 km and 2.5 km).

The NN Marathon Rotterdam is well known for its unique atmosphere, with almost one million enthusiastic spectators on the sidelines cheering on the athletes. Bands, DJs and orchestras play along the full course to keep the athletes motivated.

Because NN Group wants to support athletes at all levels, activities were developed to foster the fun of participating in the several events, such as the Running Supporter, which last year shared almost 7,000 encouragement videos. In the Nationale-Nederlanden DE Café, next to Central Station, runners can get a free massage after their event.

NN Group wishes all the runners the best of luck in reaching their personal goals during the NN Marathon Rotterdam!
