Taking place in all major cities, these are the most fun 5 km races that you’ll ever do. Runners (and walkers) are showered with colored corn starch throughout the course. Some runners choose to wear goggles or bandanas to keep the cornstarch out of their faces. The majority of runners, however, dive right into the color to get as much of it on them as possible. In the end, everyone just looks like a walking rainbow. Check the schedule for the next race, as they rotate throughout the year.
These are not your average 10 km races. Urban trails allow runners to race through historic buildings, art galleries, museums, hotels, theatres, schools and other private or exclusive properties.These courses wind through side streets, muddy trails, in and out of metro stations and up and down many, many stairs. Some breweries and chocolate or cheese tastings happen during the run too. Live music and DJs also accompany runners along the trail. Check the schedule for the next race, as they rotate throughout the year.
The Bastogne War Museum, Mardasson Memorial, Forest of peace and the Sherman Tank make up what is generally known as the Memorial site in Bastogne.

Since the time of Julius Caesar, the site of the Citadel has been used as a military stronghold. There, Caesar conquered the Belgic Gauls and used it against invading armies from Germany up and until the 5th century. The Citadel was added onto over the years and, in the 16th century, it was meant to serve as an actual city in the event of war. Its underground passageways add yet another layer to this fortress. Its fortification and refortification continued until the 19th century. Today, it is many miles long and stands as one of the oldest erections in the Benelux region. You will need an entire day to visit the Citadel properly.
