About Antwerp 10 Miles & Marathon

The AG Antwerp Marathon is one of the most popular running-events on the Belgian calendar.The race attracts over 10,000 participants and although the most popular event is the 10-mile run, the full-marathon also draws a lot of eyes as international athletes come to Belgium for this fantastic event. There is also a short, 5-mile run, all of which go through the beautiful city of Antwerp, with thousands lining the streets to cheer the athletes on their way. The marathon is relatively young, only started in 2010, but has quickly become a popular event thanks to efficient organization and a beautiful race-route.

After the finish all runners will receive one bottle of sports water, one bottle of AA Drink Isolemon and one piece of gingerbread. This will give runners the opportunity to drink every 2.5 km.

Award Medals

At the finish every participant will receive a medal. By signing up for the marathon you can order an extra Medaltime. Medaltime is a personally engraved medal plate to make both your performance and your medal even more unique.

Equipment Storage

Marathon runners can hand over their sports bags for storage at the start on Linkeroever (before 8:45). Storage trucks will be located a the registration tent. The organisation will make sure these bags are transported to the finish. After the finish runners can collect their bags at the Groenplaats (150 m from the finish).

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 10 Miles & 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.
