Nearly 2,500 runners participated in the Manneken-Pis Corrida

The 9th edition of the Manneken-Pis Corrida attracted nearly 2,500 runners this year.

Just a day after Christmas, runners gathered for a Christmas jog of 4 to 8 km in the streets of central Brussels.

After the start at the Spanjeplein, the runners passed by, in one or two loops, a number of remarkable places in the capital such as the Martelarenplein, the prestigious Koninginnegalerij, the Nieuwstraat or the Grote Markt, before they greeted the Manneken-Pis, which was specially dressed for this occasion.

The runners took over the city with their attention-grabbing red t-shirts and Christmas hats for more than 2 hours. They were greeted with mulled wine and tea upon arrival in the city center.



Since  the 9th edition was a great success, a 10th edition is to be expected in 2019 between Christmas and New Year.
