Athora Great Bruges Marathon is postponed until 2021...
Due to the coronavirus, we have unfortunately been forced to postpone the Athora Great Bruges Marathon, scheduled to take place on 18th October, by one year to Sunday 17th October 2021. But do not despair; there will be a virtual version of the event on 17th and 18th October 2020.
Under the current circumstances, it is no longer realistic to have the event go ahead in 2020 in a festive and safe way. Therefore, we have decided to postpone the Athora Great Bruges Marathon until the autumn of 2021. This is an enormous blow but it is the only right decision to make. As a society, we have to take our collective responsibility and comply with the measures currently issued by the authorities. It will require joint and large-scale efforts to get COVID-19 under control. Additionally, we as organisation have to also take our own responsibility to safeguard the health of participants, volunteers, spectators and all other people involved.
The next edition of the Athora Great Bruges Marathon will take place on Sunday 17/10/2021. You will be able to sign up later this year.
If you were already registered, your registration will automatically remain valid for the new edition. All participants will receive a personal email.
… And is going virtual!
You can still run your Athora Great Bruges Marathon this year by using a new, revolutionary event app. Challenge your environment and discover Bruges at its best – virtually or otherwise. You will be able to read all about it on this website!
Stay safe, keep running and look after each other.
