Why this limit? Because the course and the cafetaria
cannot cope with more people. When runners are
hindering each other on the rather narrow paths, our
beloved LPM will cause more frustration than happiness.
And we all want to enjoy the race, don’t we! So, it’s quality we want, not quantitiy.
My dearest friends,

"It is heart warming, seeing an athlete
crossing the finish line, crying of
and feeling an organiser
grabbing you and
hugging you and also
Seeing this, a spectator joins in and
Welcome in Genk, dear people.”
This is the picture and the lovely atmosphere which
makes this marathon
