Last Sunday, 18 June, the second edition of the Great Breweries Marathon attracted 3,850 runners and 2,350 walkers to its unique beer-themed marathon.
The Great Breweries Marathon, organised by Golazo sports, teamed up with three participating breweries: Duvel Moortgat, PALM Belgian Craft Brewers and Bosteels Brewery.
Enthusiasts were offered the choice between the Great Breweries Marathon for runners, the Great Breweries Marathon Walk, Great Breweries 25K for runners and the Great Breweries 25K Walk. The start was held at Duvel Moortgat in Puurs.
At the atmospheric and historic brewery sites and degustation points of PALM Belgian Craft Brewers and Bosteels Brewery participants managed to replenish their energy reserves and taste the refined beers these two breweries have to offer.
At the finish at Duvel Moortgat all participants received a luxurious package of beers from the three breweries so they could enjoy their rich brews again at home.
The next themed marathon is the Great Bruges Marathon on Sunday 15 October.
