Take part in the Amsterdam Half Marathon for Whizz Kidz!

The Amsterdam Half Marathon kicks off at Stadionweg and takes participants on a journey through the hear of the city. Runners will pass iconic landmarks, such as the renowned Rijksmuseum at Museumplein, the famous Vondelpark, and across the majestic Utrechtse Bridge over the Amstel River, all before reaching a spectacular finish at the historic Olympic Stadium.

What's more, the grandstand at the Olympic Stadium is open to spectators so you can experience support from the crowds as you make your triumphant finish!

Join Team Whizz Kidz and you'll receive:

  • Access to training guides for all levels, ensuring you're fully prepared for the start line.
  • Regular emails featuring support, Whizz Kidz updates and fundraising advice.
  • Personalised access from our dedicated Events team to smash your fundraising goal.
  • Raise your first £100 and you'll get your own free Whizz Kidz running vest.

The money you raise will help us reach even more young wheelchair users by funding mobility equipment, life skills training and opportunities for young people to reach their full potential.

  • £110 could pay for additional parts to extend the life of a young person's wheelchair and 'grow' the equipment as a child's needs change.
  • £347 could fund a child to attend a Wheelchair Skills Training session and develop vital skills to help them use their wheelchair safely and confidently.
  • £1,300 could enable Whizz Kidz to provide for an adapted trike for a young wheelchair user, giving them a safe way to play and have fun with other children. 

Sign up for a charity place with Whizz Kidz today and together, we can create opportunities for young wheelchair users to get the equipment, skills and confidence to go further.

Join Team Whizz-Kidz so more children like Darby can race in the park

Before his Whizz-Kidz trike, Darby would get frustrated at not being able to keep up with his sister. As soon as he was in the trike, he was off! He and his sister now race each other in the park, and he feels like any other child having fun and making friends.
