1578 miles for 1578 smiles: running helps!

15 March 2023

What a top edition! 1578 sports enthusiasts, including 32 Elicio runners, ran 1-mile (1.6 km) laps in Bruges city centre on Saturday for charity.

While running, each participating team tried to collect as many 'miles' as possible for one of the five charities within a 2-hour period. A 1-mile (or 1.6km) course was laid out, with light and sound effects in the streets of Bruges and along the Vesten. Profits from the event will be divided among the five chosen charities in proportion to the total number of miles run.


The atmosphere was fantastic, during the run and at the after-party! Worth repeating as far as we are concerned.
