Yesterday we were informed that Wim Witvliet has passed away. Wim was one of the five founders of the Rotterdam Marathon and also an honorary member of athletics club PAC. We wish his family and relatives much strength.
"Wim was an impressive person," said Mario Kadiks, director of the NN Marathon Rotterdam. “I got to know Wim as a skilled, enthusiastic and vital man until a very old age. I enjoyed working with him in the early years of our marathon. We still saw and spoke to each other regularly during the marathon, where he was present until the last as guest of honor. We look back with gratitude on what Wim has meant for our organization."
The NN Marathon Rotterdam, traditionally organized in the spring, will move to the autumn in 2021. Due to the corona pandemic, the 40th edition of #demooiste has been rescheduled to October 24 after consultation with the municipality of Rotterdam and main sponsor Nationale-Nederlanden.
‘’We do not want to give runners false hope, but clarity.’’, emphasizes organizer Mario Kadiks. ‘’Public health always comes first. And the chance that a massive, festive event like the NN Marathon Rotterdam can continue in a safe way is much greater in October than in April.’’
The NN Marathon Rotterdam is now scheduled to take place on the 10th and 11th of April 2021. Every individual runner with a place in the 2020 edition will be able to use their place in 2021. All participants have already received an e-mail with further information.Read more
