Our Vision

Is having fun, running and laughing really incompatible? Our Beer Lovers’ Marathon is exactly at this crossroad!

The great challenge we set ourselves 7 years ago is to offer a race that helps you to meet your “marathon” challenge! Every hero, from the first to the last one, will experience tons of surprises throughout the race, to help him/her reach this 42.195 km goal.

And if that’s not enough to convince you, talk to your friends, because at the Beer Lover’s Marathon running can also be a team sport.

The marathon

Who has never finished a 15 or 20km race saying “a marathon NEVER IN MY LIFE!”???

Are you certain? Anyone who can finish a 15 or 20 km race has done more than 70% of the work to achieve this mythical distance. And the Beer Lovers’ Marathon is a unique opportunity to run a marathon without pressure, and where everyone encourages each other to finish.

Every year the BLM welcomes 30% of participants who run their first marathon… so why not you?

The pit stops are numerous (between 15 and 20) and give you energy thanks to our belgian specialties, the various music and the smiles of our volunteers who also try to make sure you cross the finish line! Not forgetting the runners’ costumes, which will offer you some distraction while running between two stops!.

“Every year, the founders of the Beer Lovers’ Marathon get Liege and the participants moving. A superb organisation that we brewers do not want to miss under any circumstances. It’s a pleasure to celebrate with the marathoners by letting them taste our beers. We look forward to 22 May 2022!”
