Next Beer Lovers’ Marathon planned on the 29th of August 2021

Dear Runners,

Here is the last information about the Beer Lovers’ Marathon 2021 before the end of the 100% refund period (on July 31th).

1)      IMPACT OF THE FLOOD ON THE RACE –> 2 rounds of 21 km

As you might have seen on television, the region of Liège has been terribly impacted by the flood two weeks ago. Many people have lost everything in their house and some event more! With the authorities we decided to avoid running in those areas as 1-some roads are not fit for running 2-partying in those areas is not appropriate. The impact is that we will run 2 rounds of 21 km! The good thing is that it means we concentrate all animations on 21km! So it will be even more intense! Exact track soon available on our website)


Belgium has put in place a “Covid Safe Ticket”. It means that event can happen WITHOUT ANY SOCIAL DISTANCING OR MEASURES under the condition that all participants have;

  •         A proof of full vaccination (2 weeks after last shot)
  •         A negative PCR test of less than 48 hours (so you need to get tested on FRIDAY 27 Aug) ONLY PCR are valid, self-made tests of antigen test are not valid
  •         A proof of recovery (it means that you have had a POSITIVE PRC test at least 10 days ago and max 3 month ago, and that you are fine now)

This means you will need to show one of the 3 to enter the site and get your BIB. This is also tru for the people who want to come to the festival only. ALL PEOPLE ABOVE 12 years old need to comply! In case of changes we will inform you ASAP.

We are very happy about this situation! It means we will be able to dance, to hug, to party! Like in 2019!!


To further help the people who lost everything, we have decided to

  •         Add a 21km run. Those runners will only make 1 round of the track in a time limit of 3hrs. 5eur par runner will go the first aid fund. It’s time to motivate friends who cannot run a 42km to discover our atmosphere!
  •         Fund raising festival. We are preparing the Beer Lovers’ Village with concerts, foodtruck and… a big big big bar! 😊 Absolutely all the money raised will go the first aid fund. So please, come with your thirsty friends and help them!

If you want to unsubscribe for the marathon and get a full refund of your ticket, please send an email to BEFORE July 31st midnight.

We hope to see all of you on the starting line of the marathon and many others on the 21km! The edition will be special but fantastic!

See you soon.

The ultra-motivated team of the Beer Lovers’ Marathon.


As promised the registration are opened as of now !!! this year registration will be done via the Time2Race platform by following this link. You’ll have to create your profile, register to the Beer Lovers’ Marathon event and select your tickets (Marathon, Pasta Party and Guided tour).
