Information

Belgian 24-hour running championship

The Belgian Championships will also take place during the 24hrs Sittard 2024!

More info soon!

The 24hrs Sittard is an ultraloop on a flat route of 2029 meters . Participants can choose from different parts: 24, 12, 6, 3 or 1 hour

As soon as the starting signal is given, they have this time to cover as many kilometers as possible. This by running as many laps as possible. If the participant takes a rest/break, this time continues.

When the time has been increased, a final signal sounds and it is checked how many laps and remaining meters the participant has run. The result of the race will therefore be ranked according to the distance run.

Now also possible to participate in the 24hrs as a team!
