Manneken-Pis Corrida 2017

The annual Manneken-Pis Corrida will take place tonight.

Following Christmas holidays, it seems to be impossible to even consider to go for a run. That’s definitely a solid project for 2018 as part of a package of New Year’s resolutions. But some seem to be willing to resist and remain fit between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. How? Thanks to the Manneken-Pis Corrida.

This 7th annual race will bring together 2400 runners to the Place d’Espagne.  The corrida will start at 8:30 pm for a 4-km (little corrida) or for the brave ones 8-km (big corrida).


This famous event also aims to support two foundations, Vivre Ensemble and Rafaël vzw, which care about homeless people. Participants must wear the official t-shirt and pay 18 euro (big Corrida) or 16 euro (little Corrida). This corrida will allow runners to discover another perspective of the Winter Wonders.

Registration here.
