It all started with a kids run this morning. Participants in the marathon had also started at that moment - Kenya's Felix Kirwa took it in 2 hours, 15 minutes and 57 seconds.
There was also a short run of 5 kilometres and a Ladies Run. However, the main event of the day was the 10 Miles, with some 27,000 taking part.
The busy event included various security measures (see video). Police checked sports bags, among other things. Motorists were asked to avoid Antwerp today; those taking part were requested to use public transport as much as possible.
Long-distance traffic was diverted via the Liefkenshoek Tunnel, where no toll had to be paid.
