What you'll do

The private running tour takes you through the historical city centre: Expect to see the main highlights (Grand Place, Palais Royal, Palais de Justice, etc...) but also a few hidden gems. Expect to hear about the city's history, its architecture, urban legends, some typical Belgian quirky stories, and also how it is for us to live in the cosmolitan capital of Europe that Brussels is today.
The tour takes about 1h30 during which cover more or less 9km, because we make frequent stops. The pace is relaxed, the focus is on tourism.

The mission of the organization is to organize cultural guided tours in Brussels, combining sport, tourism and environmental durability. It wants to bring visitors and inhabitants in close contact with eachother by means of their shared interest, running. Visitors discover the city from a inhabitant's point of view, and inhabitants get to know people and cultures from all over the world.

This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to Sightjogging asbl.

Where you'll be

Running will allow you to see the most of the main highlights of the historical centre: Grand Place, Manneken Pis, Palais de Justice, Place de Jeu de Balle, etc.. Too many too mention in fact.
Depending on whether the time of your visit matches opening hours, we also try to take a quick peek inside buildings, like the Comic Strip Museum or the Central Station to reveal to you its royal secret.

It was my third time in Brussels and YET there were many things I learned on the tour with Bastien that I didn't know or hadn't seen yet. I wonder why it took me so long to book this tour, really! I had an amazing time exploring Brussels with Bastien. He's smart and knowledgeable, didn't mind answering any questions that I threw in about the country or culture and I had some pretty good laughs too. If you're not an experienced runner then do not worry, Bastien adapted his pace according to the redness of my face but also challenged me while running. I would say that this tour was the highlight of my weekend trip to Brussels.

Caroline was fantastic! We took a ~3 mile loop around the old city and she showed me the key sights as well as details that I would not have noticed, esp the murals and the dedications to the Holocaust victims on the sidewalks. A great way to see the city in 1.5 hours. She was very friendly and knowledgeable as well. Answered many questions and it felt like I was running with a friend!

What a great way to spend a morning! In fact, Bastien was not available at the time that I was free, so Caroline gave the tour. She was friendly and knowledgable about Brussels. We saw the historical highlights and she gave a great explanation of them. But I liked that she also showed some of the places she likes in the city, as well as some really cool places to run, including cutting through buildings. There is absolutely no way I could have found my way around all the things we saw. Thanks, Caroline!!
