Since 1991, a 42.195 km marathon is held in and around Leiden that attracts about 9,000 runners. More than 1100 people from Team Leiden Marathon, including traffic controllers, caregivers, and many volunteers work hard to make the event a success.
Taxi Wielkens has been looking after transport for the Leiden Marathon since the turn of the century. “It started with driving home the team members from Leiden Marathon. Turns out that director David Wielkens is a passionate runner himself and he immediately understood the mammoth task my team members had carried out. He offered free transport out of the blue, without having to ask for it.”
A tremendous help
“Taxi Wielkens is a tremendous help to Leiden Marathon; transporting team members, runners and top athletes. I just send Wielkens a list of details, and the taxi company does the rest. Runners that arrive at Schiphol at the strangest times are all picked up with no problems. Since 2014, Wielkens has also looked after transport for those who have to drop out or give up. All this means that Taxi Wielkens has grown into an indispensable partner of the Leiden Marathon, one we can always count on.
