I'd like to start this thread up again.
Has anyone found out anything about running in Antwerp. When i was out there recently I saw a massive billboard touting the Antwerp 10 (i'm guessing 10Km) so they definitely run!!
Is it just England that does running clubs. I'm slow and rubbish but I get a lot out of my running club and it would be good to join something that motivates me and allows me to meet new people out there.
Any updated information would be gratefully received.
Thanks for replying. I guess i'm happiest with 7-10km but I have the Reading half marathon coming up next weekend. So I've been stepping up the milage.
I'm trying to find out if I can still register for the Antwerp 10. The link doesn't seem to say whether i can or not. Happy that its 10 miles.
I'm going to be working around Beerse, so Gent might be a bit far
I am learning Dutch and it can only get better hahaha
Hey, Yep Beerse is near Tournhout. Everything seems so flat (i'm pretty sure that;s why I am drawn to the country!) i'm surprised you say the Limburg Hills. I'm worried I'm not going to be able to cope with 13.1 miles in Reading, (known to be one of the flattest halves in England!) let alone be able to do it in hills.
Are Dutch lessons expensive?? I've just downloaded a load of books and was going to practice that way hahaha.
I will look forward to the URLs and I'll have to figure out where the hell i'll be ending up before i find a running club that suits me. Interesting that there is such a difference between club focuses in different towns.
Lovin' the Phlegm ))
Yep - it's the same where I am (Sint Niklaas). I have real issues with hill training as the biggest hill i have is a motorway bridge! BUT I can assure you - once you get into Limburg - there are some large hills. I did Reading in 2008 and I remember a hill! It didnt seem that flat to me!
I'm doing it at the VUB in Brussels and it's not that expensive. Of course - there are variations! If you go to your stadhuis and ask for dutch lessons they'll give you the state sponsored ones. Decent lessons and teaching and normally you get some money back. I did an intensive course in Antwerp (linguapolis) and loved it.
Here are the URLs as promised:
There's some races but also race groups:
