The 2008 edition of the Brussels Marathon and Half Marathon will take place on Sunday 5 October. One of Europe's most beautiful marathons starts at the Cinquantenaire Park and finishes on the historic Grand-Place going through Brussels-Centre, Watermaal-Bosvoorde, Oudergem, Tervuren, Sint-Pieters-Woluwe and Etterbeek. I ran the 20km twice in 1984 and 1985 so can recommend it.
