Amsterdam, The Netherlands – Before they start in the 33rd edition of the ING Amsterdam Marathon in the Olympic Stadium on Sunday (19 Oct) former winners Robert Cheboror and Solomon Busendich have an another duty to perform.
Helping the race’s green credentials, the two victors will plant first two trees of more than a hundred which will be dug into place alongside the race’s route in the Vondel Parc.
The Amsterdam Olympic stadium is 80-years-old this year, and to mark the occasion, four trumpeters from the top of the Olympic Tower will announce the approach of the leading runners on Sunday. This same method of announcing was made at the 1928 Olympic marathon as the leaders came towards the stadium.
