Grote Oorlog

In 2018 it will have been exactly 100 years ago since World War I came to an end. The 'Great War' was the scene of unspeakable cruelty. One of the most important fronts was situated in the western-most part of Flanders, with Ypres as its focal point.

On 6 May you will have the opportunity to remember this historic moment alongside runners from all countries worldwide during the Great Peace Run: a 21k run visiting iconic monuments and places that played an important part in the events of 1918. 

The course of this unique experience run and walk starts at the famous Menin gate, continuing on through Flanders' Fields, including Hill 60 and Hill 62. The finish is drawn on the town square of Ypres in front of the “In Flanders Fields” Museum.
