Our running tour runs from June 1 – 5, 2018 or June 1 – 7, 2018. We will be staying in Bruges, Belgium, the quintessential medieval town. Bruges is one of our favorite European towns! It’s brimming with quiet cobblestone lanes, romantic canals, grand market squares and soaring towers, this Unesco World Heritage site has another photo opportunity around every corner.
We think Belgium is one of the underrated and overlooked destinations in Europe. The people are friendly, the art, history, and beautiful architecture are plentiful, and the food and drink are amazing! Some specialties we will have the opportunity to enjoy are mussels, Belgian waffles, the “to die for” chocolate, “Belgian fries” (not “French fries!”), and the world-class beers.
The race is definitely a unique one! We will run through three of Belgium’s top breweries and the idyllic Belgian countryside. After the run, we will get a taste of all those amazing beers! (Or, if you walk the route, you can taste along the way!)
In addition to beer, Belgium is home to some of the best chocolate in the world. In our private chocolate tour, we will nibble our way through Brussels’ chocolate boutiques and wander past some of Brussels top sights.
Finally, we will all have time to slow down and enjoy all that Bruges & Belgium has to offer!
