Informazioni Antwerp Night Marathon

Antwerp is known for its nightlife, cosy bars and entertainment. On September 12, thousands of runners will run into the night. DJ’s and rock bands every km will create a fantastic atmosphere for both runners and people along the course.

There are over 2000 marathons in the world. Only few run into the dark!

The course of the brand new Antwerp Night Marathon will take participants on a sightseeing tour through the beating heart of the city of Antwerp! No landmark will be left untouched! On top of this the course will make you discover several hidden gems of the city!

The start and finish for all distances are in the area around the event square by the renovated Scheldekaaien Sint-Andries. The marathon course consists of 1 unique round of 42.195 km and first loops around the Olympic quarter on the Kiel, to then come past the brand-new landmark ‘the Olympic Rings’. Then, it is back to the centre, through the Zuid and other central locations, Berchem, Zurenborg, Borgerhout and along Park Spoor Noord, the Port Authority building and the Eilandje. Via a last route through the centre and along the Grote Markt and the Suikerrui, everybody reaches the finish around the corner on the Scheldekaaien. The Antwerp Night Half Marathon course offers participants a route of 21.097 km right through the inner city.

Panoramica

The starting line of the Antwerp Marathon lies at Thonethlaan, near the left bank of the Schelde river. The route takes runners through Blancefloerlaan, before moving towards Oude Leeuwenrui and Plantinkaai. There are two fabulous tunnels along the race-route and these add to the beautiful cityscape that flies by as runners continue along the way. The route moves towards St. Bavostraat and Filip Williotstraat, before heading all the way to Rivierenhof. As the runners come closer to the finish line, they pass through Londenstraat and Napelsstraat, before reaching Ernsest Van Dijckkaai. Finally, the route heads towards Suikerrui, before hitting the finish line at Grote Markt.


Antwerp Night Marathon Trivia

In terms of difficulty, the Antwerp Marathon is one of the flattest routes on the international marathon calendar. Belgium, as such, is an extremely flat country with almost no hills or mountains. This makes for a very fast race-track where the variation comes in the form of turns and twists along the route. That said, everything is quite standard about the marathon-route and even the race-temperature is very forgiving. All in all, it is the kind of race where athletes tend to aim for their personal bests, as the conditions, route and weather have very little influence on performance, boosting it if nothing else.
