Start and finish
The NN Egmond Half Marathon starts and finishes in Egmond aan Zee. All distances start on Boulevard North, which is approximately one kilometre from the Sporthal De Watertoren sports centre. The start pens are signposted from the sports centre.
The start pens are colour coded to match the colour on your race bib. The start pens for the recreational categories are allocated on the basis of the specified target time. Please note! Runners are not permitted to join an earlier group. However, it is possible to join a later group.
Next to the Sporthal De Watertoren sports centre, on the VV Egmondia football pitch, there is a large heated tent where participants can change. There will be limited opportunities to shower in the club’s changing rooms. Business and charity teams can use the changing and showering facilities at the sports centre. There is also a special Business Tent for business teams next to the sports centre.
You can hand in or leave your bag at:
1. The monitored bag drop tents in front of the Sporthal De Watertoren sports centre.
2. In the tent on the VV Egmondia football pitch. (This area is not monitored.)
When you hand in your bag at the Sporthal De Watertoren sports centre, the bag drop team will put a sticker with a number on your race bib and a matching sticker on your bag. To collect your bag, simply present the sticker on your bib after the race.
There will be a locker trailer in front of the Sporthal De Watertoren sports centre. The cost of hiring a locker is € 5.00. This includes a € 2.00 deposit.
Please note! Any clothing left near the start pens or attached to fences will be removed shortly after the start of the race. At the finish line you will be provided with a poncho, so you don’t get cold.
The quarter marathon finish line is on Zeeweg, opposite the main entrance to Hotel Zuiderduin. The half marathon finish line is on Boulevard North.
