Appropriate medal that is also a bottle opener

Beer Lovers Marathon Liege 2019

After taking part in this event last year and loving it, the theme being hero’s and Pete’s birthday being on the day of the event it was a no brainer to enter again this year. The event is so well organised, has a wide variety of food & beer stops and is easy to get to from the UK.

 

Saturday - Pre race day

We headed out of London St Pancreas on the Eurostar to Brussels, the best thing with your Eurostar ticket is that it can include your onward travel through Belgium which makes it nice & easy & cheap. we arrived in Liege & checked into our hotel & then headed to the expo that wasn’t open yet but the beer festival was next door. The beer festival has a system where you need to buy a glass and beer tokens at a kiosk be you are able to get a drink. The beer festival is full of bars with beers that you will have on the way round & they are clearly marked with what KM they will be at. There are also a few extra bars that won’t be on the course including one that had a green mojita beer! very tasty!

After sampling a few we headed to collect our numbers, there was a bit of a que this year which was made easier with beer being delivered to us whilst we waited for €2 each.
