Fortis Marathon Rotterdam 2008

Fortis Marathon Rotterdam 2008, April 13 at a Glance

MAR 19 2008

If you are planning to go outside this summer, I suggest you to spend your holiday in Holland and watch the 2008 Fortis Marathon Rotterdam.

UPDATE: Fortis Marathon Rotterdam 2008 completed successfully on 13th April, if you participated or looking to know results of the marathon then visit to official race result page.

The Fortis Marathon Rotterdam is a very popular event with more than 20,000 runners at the start including the absolute world’s best runners. There are more than 830,000 spectators alongside the course to cheer on the participants.

The route is completely traffic-free. The starting point will be Coolsingel in the very heart of Rotterdam, where at 11.00 Am on April 13, 2008, participants will take off after the cannon fire. This 26.2-mile running is already a tradition that started on May 1981.

Organized by Rotterdam Marathon Foundation and Sponsorship managed by RSPNS, we will be experiencing another excellent display of dedication and endurance by the runners.

What excites me in this event is that, three 2:06 runners have been added to the starting field of the 28th edition of the Fortis Rotterdam Marathon. The additional runners are three Kenyans, Robert Cheboror, William Kipsang and Joseph Riri who have personal bests sub 2:07:00. They will battle for championship together with 20,000 other participants from 76 countries.

Cheboror, a 29-year-old won the 2004 Amsterdam Marathon in a personal best of 2:06:23, and is the fastest of the trio. is expecting a winner from 3 of them as I expect Robert Cheboror to go home victorious as well. Kenyans are always good in running.

The registration is already closed so if you are planning to participate, better reserve yourself next year and be a comfortable audience at the moment.
