Belgian mountain race championships
A championship which is eagerly-awaited by fans of the sport. It's also an amazing spectacle in Malmedy!
The "Women" and "Junior Men" categories will complete a 5.5km circuit, while the "Junior Women" will complete a 4km uphill adapted loop.
The race for "Senior Men" will take place on two identical 5.5km laps. The course mainly consists of a succession of ascents and descents on forest paths. The total change in height is 550m per lap and includes some quite steep sections.
A more "friendly" jog will take place at the start of the programme on a relatively flat circuit.
Each kilometre is indicated and there are refreshments halfway along and at the end of the long circuit.
Who can take part?
The competition is open to both affiliated members and non-members. Showers and changing-rooms are available on site.
The different titles and certificates will only be given to affiliated participants.
Registration is possible on the day of the race.
