First Virtual Brussels Airport Marathon brings authentic event experience!

The first virtual Brussels Airport Marathon & Half Marathon will run from 28th September until 4th October and will offer a challenging and safe running experience that unites runners from all over the world and invites them to discover Brussels virtually. Participants can choose from 3 challenges: 10km, 21km or 42.195km. You can start running from your own front door, along your favourite training course, on your local athletics track...basically wherever you want! We have provided a wonderful virtual route that has been designed especially for this challenge. 'The Brussels City Route' takes participants past a great many A-locations in the Brussels Capital Region. It offers up a combination of famous city landmarks and numerous well-known places, but also some hidden green pearls. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, it is not recommended to physically signpost the Brussels City Route.

Revolutionary event app

No matter where or when you run your challenge, the new and revolutionary event app - used in Belgium for the first time - promises to offer every participant a lifelike event experience. For instance, you will be able to listen to audio descriptions of the highlights that you would normally see at that point in your run, but you can also choose your own start wave, among other options, and compete with your fellow runners. Afterwards, it is easy to share your result, photos and virtual medal on your social media channels via the app.
