One of the Eindhoven Marathon’s ‘Unique Selling Points’ is the Marathon Festival. On Sunday, whether you are running or visiting, music and entertainment will make it more fun. Over fifty live bands, orchestras and DJs are stationed at regular intervals along the course, working hard to motivate and entertain participants and spectators alike.The Eindhoven Marathon is subject of new research, which should lead to a tool that allows runners to screen themselves for the risk of running injuries. This tool will help prevent injuries and advise on when to seek medical help, for example. The research will be conducted by Dr. Dennis van Poppel, who is in daily life, a sports physiotherapist, manual therapist and movement scientist. He works at Avans Hogescholen. In the physical part of the study, he is assisted by Laurens van Oosterwijk of the Máxima Medical Centrum.For more info in English:
