Great Bruges Marathon
The Great Bruges Marathon will be held on Sunday 21 October 2018. There will be a full and half a marathon. Both runners and walkers can participate and this at varying times.
The race will start at 09.00 a.m. at the Dijver and goes out to Dudzele, Zeebrugge and Lissewege before it heads back to the city centre and finishes at the Markt square (see detailed trail in annex).
The Dijver will be closed from Nieuwstraat to Wollestraat between 06.00 a.m. and 12.00 midday. The Market will be made traffic-free from 10.00 a.m. until the last runner arrives.
For the sake of the runners (not the walkers), certain streets in the city centre will be temporarily closed to traffic. Please consult the attached overview with colour codes with the planned timing of the fastest and slowest runner. The trail will be made traffic-free from 30 minutes before any participants passing and will be normalised depending on the whereabouts of the last runner. If the race allows this, crossing traffic will be possible.
The Citytour minibuses and horse carriages will exceptionally start their tours from Wollestraat from midday onwards.
