Únete Beer Lovers' Marathon

We came to the idea of organizing the Beer Lovers Marathon in 2012 during the Marathon du Médoc …
It was the first marathon for many of us and we really had a good time. Although it was 32°C, the costumes, the bands, the atmosphere and the tasting really helped us to finish this mythical distance with a smile on our face.

On our way back we asked ourselves” Why don”t we have a similar event in Belgium. We have a world reputation in folklore, chocolates, beer, waffles, frites, etc. Shouldn’t we organize this at home?”. But due to lack of time and resources we didn’t go further.

We enjoyed the concept so much that the year after we took part in the “Champenoise”, a shorter race, but full of bubbles. There again we dreamed about organising this at home.

The project really took off on September 29th 2014, the day following our participation in the Berlin Marathon. We went to the fitness to do a bit of biking to relax our muscles and we meet a woman with a “Marathon du Médoc” T-Shirt. We start a conversation and… MIRACLE, she was the wife of one of the founder of the Marathon du Médoc. We immediately exchange our emails and then the great adventure began! Two founders, Michel and Bruno, invited us to meet them in Bordeaux for a weekend and explained us everything about the Marathon du Médoc. Thanks to their advices we could build a project file that we submitted to the city councillor for tourism in Liège. And after some months and a lot of work, the project was accepted!

Michel and Bruno came to run the BLM in 2016! It was an honour for us to welcome them!

Destacable en la ruta

Important is to know that the first 10 Km are pretty hilly. We want to attrack your attention on two specific moments.

1) The escalation of the Buren Stairs (famous in Liège). It’s a 374 steps stairway and climb 194 m. We recomend you not to run them but to enjoy the view on the city. Once on top of the strairs, the road continues to climb for 200m. Please remain at a slow pace!

2) 3km after the Bueren stairs, you will run on the “Rue des Cotillages” that also ends with a steep 200m.
After that the route remains flat for the 30+ next kilomètres. Let us remind you once more that the total distance equals a real marathon, hence make sure to manage the effort all along that distance.
