The "Polders of Kruibeke" nature reserve is not only a controlled flood plain but also a Valhalla for athletes who want to enjoy nature in its purest form. With its unpaved paths, vast fields and a multitude of animal and plant species, you will be in a fantastic environment to complete your sporting challenge.
You can choose from 3 distances within the course: 10.5K, 21K & 42K. If running a half or full marathon is a bridge too far for you, you can also participate in our walk! You walk for 21K through the same fantastic scenery with the same amenities and all at your own pace!
