Hi, just wondering if anyone has run the Rotterdam Marathon before?

I've never ran a full marathon before but having got into running over the last year I fancy giving it a shot, and I'm going to be in the Netherlands anyway so figured Rotterdam is a decent shout. If anyone's done it, what is the course like? By all accounts it's about as flat as they come (major plus point), but is it interesting and well run, things like that? I doubt I'll do many marathons in my life so I want it to be a good one!

Also, any idea of price? Registration isn't open yet and unless I'm being completely dense, I can't see prices anywhere.

Hi Dan,

Rotterdam is a good pick for a marathon, i've done it the last 2 years and will be doing it again next year, the organisation is faultless, excellent start/finish location, a well supported route for most of the course, lots of water and aid stations, friendly/helpful marshalls, great medal and t-shirt/goody bag.

Entry opens around November and from memory around about 40 euros and yes the course is pancake flat.

Let me know if you need anymore info.
