IMPORTANT NEWS: Marathon postponed to 2021 (new date will be announced soon)
16/05/2020 update due to Covid19 context
Dear marathon runners, dear friends,
Today, we are forced to share some bad news with you. This week should have been the week of the 2020 Beer Lovers’ Marathon. Unfortunately, it’s also this week that we got the news that the initial idea to postpone our event to the 27th of September won’t be feasible.
Until today, we really believed it would be possible to make it, but at the end, there is no way… we have to postpone the 5th edition of your BLM to 2021. Taking into account the recommendations of the WHO, the Belgian National Security Council and the City of Liège, it seems better for everyone’s health to postpone this edition to next year, when the COVID-19 crisis will have reasonably disappeared and when the life of each one of us will get back on a more normal path!
Let’s face it, our event and the kind of experience we try to offer, are not really meeting the best distancing, security and public health requirements. We believe those rules should not be overlooked, for you and also for us and all our volunteers. On top of that, the international character of our marathon offers an additional risk of contamination and spread of the virus.
We will therefore postpone this edition to next year, in 2021. We cannot confirm you the new date at this point in time. However, be sure you will be the first ones to be informed as soon as we have additional info regarding the transfers of subscriptions, refunds, or other new bibs available for the new date of the 5th edition of the BLM.
Until then we count on you to remain patient. The size of the event, the number of participants and runners, and the fact that we are all volunteers in the organizing team, does no longer allow us to answer each of your questions individually via email. Although we love your supportive emails and messages, you have to understand that it is useless to write us an email at the moment. We can assure you that you’ll get all the info once we have more clarity !
Take good care of yourself and your beloved ones. We wish you the best to keep yourself in good shape and to taste all our local beers on a regular basis 🙂
Thank you !
The BLM Team
