The Liège province half-marathon is a great course designed for experienced runners, and it starts and ends at Monsin Island. The runners will pass through the Hermalle-sous-Argenteau nature reserve, the exclusive Chertal site and the Monsin Island Lock. The Gravière Brock, situated along the Albert Canal upstream from the Hermalle-sous-Argenteau bridge, is a stopover for migratory birds. The two-hectare Monsin island, downstream from Liège, is bordered by the Meuse and Albert Canal and is home to the Albert I memorial. After the race, runners can enjoy the comfort of reception tents and furniture as well as snacks, soft drinks and special beers at the catering area.
