Are you a regular jogger, just a weekend exerciser, or an experienced runner? The esplanade of the Cinquantenaire is all yours for the start of this run on May 18, which threads its way through the finest avenues of the city and crosses the bucolic Bois de la Cambre. The first step before the race is to get signed up!
Sign ups for the Brussels 20 km
Participants can register starting at 9 am on Saturday, March 15, 2014. Sign-ups are possible two ways:
- At www.20kmdebruxelles.be or
- At the office of the organizers, located Rue de la Chapelle 17, 1000 Brussels.
Whichever way you choose to sign-up, you will need to be patient and, most importantly, on time! The number of participants is limited to 30,000 and fills up very quickly. The registration fee is 25 euros including VAT. The minimum age is 12. To ensure the best organisation and experience for all runners, the start is separated into 6 waves.
Your start time will be recorded as you exit the Cinquantenaire Park (about 200 meters after the official start) so that the course flows better. Participants will be given a running number according to their course time in 2013 or for an equivalent distance elsewhere.
You want to be 200% sure to get a spot in the 2014 edition of the Brussels 20 Kilometers? Join a charitable group, and you can sign up even before March 15! Are you sporty and want to focus your energy on a good cause? Here is your chance! In addition to raising the sign-up fee, you will financially support the cause of your choice. Among the organisations that we will see at the start are Médecins du Monde, Médecins sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders), Solidarité Mondiale, Fondation Damien, or the Ligue Braille. Don't wait too long to contact them, their race spots get filled up really fast too!
Ok so you're signed up? You can know proceed to the next step: training. Once again, BrusselsLife accompanies you by offering different training programs to get ready for the Brussels 20 Kilometers on May 18th.
