The Brussels Airport Marathon & Half Marathon is getting a brand-new route for this edition.

You will start and finish your race in the heart of Brussels, on a unique route that will cross many of the capital’s monuments and thoroughfares. The finish of all events will be judged on the majestic Place des Palais in Brussels.

The start on Place de Brouckère, the Annie Cordy Tunnel, the Koekelberg Basilica, the Ganshoren Marshes or the Jette Parks… a familiar first part of the route for marathon runners. A nice mix of urban life and green areas.

Then it’s back to the center of Brussels, to take the half-marathoners in their wake to other emblematic monuments on the route: the Church of Our Lady of Laeken, the Castle of Laeken, the King Baudouin Stadium and, of course, the Atomium!

From the Plateau du Heysel, you will skirt the Japanese Tower and the Chinese Pavilion, before reaching the Pont van Praet, the ideal launch pad for the climb up Boulevard Lambermont, one of Schaerbeek’s most beautiful avenues.

Finally, you head for the Cinquantenaire and Rue de la Loi, the heart of the European Institutions, before “quietly” rejoining the finishing line at Place des Palais.

This 7 km and the Persil Kids Run start and finish at Palace Square.
