Join Athora Great Bruges Marathon 2022

The Athora Great Bruges Marathon has made the conscious choice to remain loyal to its formula for success of the previous years. In this marathon with a culinary flair, you run through the historic city centre of Bruges, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and along a few picturesque polder villages.

100% of the course is on Bruges' territory. The start of the marathon is in the historic centre by the Dijver. Participants will first run in a northerly direction to the coast of Zeebrugge and will then return to finish in the shadow of the Belfry on the Grote Markt. Stretches through picturesque villages like Lissewege, Koolkerke, Dudzele and Zwankendamme will allow participants plenty of opportunity to familiarise themselves with everything that Bruges has to offer.
