The 39th edition of the Brussels 20k race last weekend saw nearly 38,000 participants take part from 128 countries.
The weather on Sunday was hot and humid, and 440 Belgian Red Cross volunteers were there to help treat those affected by the heat. All three main EU institutions were represented, including Commissioner Marianne Thyssen on behalf of the Commission, Director General of Communication Jaume Duch Guillot representing the Parliament, and President of the European Council Donald Tusk - who ran the race in the respectable time of 1:57:50.
The interinstitutional team 'Running for Europe' ran in support of the European Year of Cultural Heritage, with 1,151 staff registered as runners. The fastest among them in the women's category was An Renckens (DG COMP), who finished 16th in 1:25:54, while in the men's category, the honour went to Guillermo Hernandez (DG CONNECT), who finished 60th in 1:13:40. For the first time, a full listing of results per DG is being compiled. Look out for it in Practical Information in the coming days.
In terms of overall winners, the podium was shared between French and Belgian runners. French marathon runner Hassan Chahdi took first place (1:02:56), followed by Belgians Arnaud Dely (1:04:16) and Lander Van Droogenbroeck (1:05:05).
On 19 May 2019 Running for Europe will run to support the European elections campaign.
