AG Antwerp 10 Miles & AG Antwerp short RUN 6K 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.
