Jasper Philipsen, Remco Evenepoel, Peter Sagan, Oliver Naesen, Chris Froome... All got to make the triumphant gesture in Aalst. You could be next, albeit while walking. Get ready for a brand new event: the 4 Mile of Aalst.
Converted: 6.4K. An unusual distance, but ideal for those for whom 5K is just a bit too short and 10K is again just a bit too challenging.
Share this event!
Before the world's best riders ride their NaTourCriterium, you can already thunder through the streets of Aalst on foot.
During four laps of 1 mile (1.6K), you can count on the encouragement of supporters who will happily warm up their voices and rehearse rhythmic handclaps for what follows afterwards.
Your effort will be rewarded with a medal at the finish line anyway. podium prizes are provided for the first three men and women.
What's more, it doesn't stop at the finish line. Afterwards, you can enjoy a splashing popular party in the carnival city par excellence. Everyone who registers also has a chance to win a duo VIP ticket for the follow-up program.
Curious about the circulation? You can find it here.
The start is located at Plein Hopmarkt. You walk counterclockwise and complete this lap four times.
A few days before the race you will receive another email with the final practical info.
