How to get there?

Come by bike or public transport to the start and finish of the Great Breweries Marathon in Breendonk. Due to road works, the local fair and marathon, the centre of Breendonk and Veurtstraat car park are NOT accessible. Prepare your trip and allow for extra time to reach your destination.

On foot or by bike
