Bruges, Belgium


Bruges is a city that will capture your heart. It is a city of human proportions, but one that can never be truly fathomed. Its history has made it great, a fact that garnered it the title of a Unesco World Heritage City. Retaining the mysteries of the Middle Ages and unashamedly exuberant, Bruges has been an international metropolis for centuries.


Start & finish are located in the heart of the historical city center. First the race course will take participants for a sightseeing tour through the old town. The second portion of the race will lead all the way to the beautiful Belgian Coast and back to ultimately finish on the famous 'Grote Markt'.

During the event, participants will be able to enjoy the best features Bruges has to offer and tons of animations along the course.
