To race you will need a race number!
You can pick up your number at the registration desk. We encourage you to pick it up between at least 30 minutes before your start time. The registration desk is located in the middle of the hill (see map below).
No race number = no time up the hill!

Please take safety pins if you have some

Start is located at the crossing Cantersteen / Place de l’Albertine / Mont des Arts-Kunstberg in Brussels, under the famous Carillon / Klokkenspel.

You want to get more datas about the segment? Check-out this Strava segment, which is approximately the same. Please note that we won’t refer to Strava but to the time measured by the official stewards and time keepers.


Do you have what it takes to get to the top?
Kids are also very much welcome to take part in the race!

Two kids races will be organised. The kids races are organised as a leave-all-together TT with the aim of getting as far up the hill as possible on a bike and finish the hill by foot if needed.
There are no age restrictions and parents are more than welcome to assist and push their kids gently up the hill (make sure you leave enough space for kids around you though!). Geared bicycles are recommended on the course but are not an obligation.

All kids will receive a small reward at the top. Come and have fun!
