This is a typical itinerary for this productPass By:
Vrijdagmarkt, Ghent 9000 Belgium
We start this running tour in Ghent at the Artevelde statue at Friday Market. This is a historical square with interesting houses and some cool facts. After a brief introduction and information about what to expect, we explore the square and the surrounding streets while we are running.
Please note that this itinerary is an example only. If people have a good fitness level (not mandatory though!!) we can cover more ground and therefore also different areas. Also, although it says that we do not make any stops, we do make stops at all landmarks so you can hear the stories told by your guide and to take pictures. We just cannot say how long we will be staying somewhere as that depends on the group. Just so you know :)
When you book, please let us know your fitness level. This is in the first place a sightseeing tour and we adjust the pace to your level. For long-distance and fast runners, please note that we don't do fast running for our tours. Pass By:
