Brussels Airport is the new title sponsor of the Brussels Marathon & Half Marathon for the next three years. The Brussels Airport Marathon & Half Marathon will be taking place this year on 28 October. Participants can register for the event from 28 February.
As new title sponsor of the Brussels Marathon & Half Marathon, Brussels Airport wants to offer all participants – whether professional or amateur, newcomer or seasoned athlete, young or old, from Brussels or the rest of the country – an athletic challenge near to the airport.
“As airport with a wide worldwide network of destinations, we want to make the name and fame of the Brussels Airport Marathon & Half Marathon even better known internationally. This event, with its international allure, is a perfect opportunity to unite the Belgian people behind a common sports event, and to display the tourist delights of our capital and our country, such as the architecture, the comic book culture or our gastronomy to a large audience”, says Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport Company.
The Brussels Airport Marathon & Half Marathon will, for the second year in succession, be part of the Great Run Series, a collection of prestigious long runs in Europe and a predicate for high quality. This is why the event is attracting an ever-growing international public wanting to combine a visit to Brussels with an athletic challenge. Last year, 20% of the more than 13,000 participants came from abroad.
Registration possible from 28 February
The 15th Brussels Airport Marathon & Half Marathon will take place on 28 October 2018. This date allows most athletes a little more preparation time after the summer holidays, during which training is less intensive.
Registration is possible from Wednesday 28 February.
