The 2023 course is not yet 100% finalized. It depends on the works of the tram at the time of the marathon. But, it should be close to the 2022 route. Here is the map of the 2022 route, with the location of the various aid stations!
To view the course in great detail, head over to Runkeeper.
The Marathon will take place at the Athénée de Fragnée: Rue de Fragnée 73 – 4000 Liège

Having fun, running and laughing, is it really incompatible? Yet it is at this crossroads that our Beer Lovers’ Marathon takes place!
Oh yes ! The big challenge we set ourselves 7 years ago was to offer a race that helps you meet your “marathon” challenge! Each hero, from the first to the last, and throughout the race will be galvanized every 2-3 km to reach the goal of 42.195 km.
And if that’s not enough to convince you, tell your friends because at the Beer Lovers’ Marathon running can also be transformed into a team sport.
Who has never finished a 15 or a 20 km by saying “a marathon NEVER! » ???
Who knows how to finish a 15 or a 20km has done more than 70% of the work in order to accomplish this mythical distance. The Beer Lovers’ Marathon is a unique opportunity to run a marathon without pressure, and where everyone encourages each other to finish.
Every year, the BLM welcomes 30% of participants who run their first marathon… so why not you?
The stands are very numerous (between 15 and 20) and give you energy. The music and the smiles of our volunteers will make you go all the way! Without forgetting the disguises of the riders, which will make you pass the time between two pits.
Each year, 15 to 18 brewers participate in creating this crazy event. We are proud of their support and happy to be able to serve you their products.
The best products of the region are also to be tasted throughout the course!
We propose to Run in Liège (RIL) to supervise the preparation of marathon runners living in the Liège region. The RIL offers at least one training session per day!
“I haven’t missed a single edition since the beginning, and this race is absolutely crazy every time!”
“Participating as a volunteer is an unforgettable experience. It’s crazy to see the motivation and energy of all these runners in disguise
“Each year, the creators of the Beer Lovers’ Marathon get Liège and the participants moving. A superb organization that we brewers do not want to miss under any circumstances. It’s a pleasure to party with marathon runners by having them taste our beers. Looking forward to the next edition!
The organization of the Beer Lovers’ Marathon is entirely voluntary.
Every year we look for new people to complete and strengthen the teams.
