WalkingAll runners


We start the Wandel Marathon on Saturday May 18, 2019 at the cozy Pieterskerkplein in the old center of Leiden. The marathon starts between 09.00 and 10.00 am, after which the half marathon starts between noon and 2 p.m. The 10 kilometers depart between 18.00 and 19.00.


The finish is on a decorated podium on the Pieterskerkplein in Leiden, which we will decorate as a lounge area, in the middle of the old town. Can you relax after your walk.

The finish line will remain open until 22:00 in the evening (at 22:30 we still have the 5km NightRun).


To increase the festive joy, we provide music on different locations.



This year we have a limit. Up to 3000 walkers can participate.



There is no minimum age to participate in Walking with Ton van Bemmelen Sports.


Care posts you can find at various locations. There you get free water, fruit and other tasty things from our volunteers.

Stamp Posts

You must get your stamps from our volunteers. Do not forget a stamp, because it is only when you can show that you have earned the beautiful medal at the finish.


Special small ferry for you

On Sunday the runners will cross the Oude Rijn with a bridge.

But you too who walk the whole and half marathon, you must cross the Oude Rijn. That’s why on Saturday at the Rijneke Boulevard we take care of a ferry that takes you to the Lage Zij. That’s fun.


Each participant receives a start badge. 

First name on startbadge

And … if you register before 1 April, you can also have your first name printed on your start badge.

Medal Engraving

The medal is the ultimate reward. That’s why we made it so beautiful. And that is why we now offer you an engraving service. Because what is more fun to engrave your end time on it? Can you simply specify when signing up or else just in the Pieterskerk.

Official Leiden Marathon Shirt

The Official Leiden Marathon Shirt has a limited edition this year. We only print 500, so be quick. In the Pieterkerk you can also have a shirt printed with, for example, your name on it.

Excursed parcours

Arrows are hung along the entire course that you simply need to follow. How easy is that? In advance sorry, if there are some lost, because they are sometimes popular with vandals and miscreants. Fortunately, you also have your booklet with the trail in it.
