The 43rd edition of the 20km of Brussels will take place on Sunday 28 May 2023.
The race will start as of 10.00 in the traditional 6 start boxes. Your estimated time will determine your start box. The Brussels 20 km is also open to walkers. The maximum time of the race has been increased to 5 hours.
This year the Running for Europe team will run to safeguard our European democracy with the "Democracy in Action" plan that aims to empower citizens and build democracies that are more resilient across the EU.
Joining the Running for Europe team also means running for a good cause. The team will raise funds for Amnesty International, an international non-governmental organization focused on human rights.
Registration is open from now until 30 April. If you decide to register after 30 April, you will need to inform the RfE organising team about your registration (email below) and collect your race number yourself at the Sibp office (17 rue de la Chapelle, 1000 Brussels). You will still be entitled to a running vest.
