About Brussels Airport Marathon & Half Marathon

Belgium's fascinating capital, and the administrative capital of the EU, Brussels is historic yet hip, bureaucratic yet bizarre, self-confident yet unshowy, and multicultural to its roots. All this plays out in a cityscape that swings from majestic to quirky to rundown and back again. Organic art nouveau facades face off against 1960s concrete developments, and regal 19th-century mansions contrast with the brutal glass of the EU’s Gotham City. This whole maelstrom swirls out from Brussels’ medieval core, where the Grand Place is surely one of the world’s most beautiful squares.

With that being said, the  Brussels Airport Marathon is the place to be!!

The Brussels Marathon is a hilly race that will challenge even the fittest participant. All receive plenty of encouragement from the public along the route. The Brussels Marathon is an annual AIMS-certified marathon hosted by Brussels, Belgium and usually held in the autumn. The full race was first held in 2004; apart from the traditional 42.195km, also shorter distances are covered nowadays.
