The Great Escape

Update 23/6/2021

For the 2021 edition of the Great Escape, we return to the original concept. This means that the race will again largely take place along the Escapardenne trails with start for the 160km in Ettelbruck and for the 80km in Clervaux. Registration (and finish) are in Maboge after which you will be brought to the start by bus.

It is currently unclear which Covid-19 measures will apply in September, but we assume that they will be rather limited. We will of course always maintain the measures that do apply. We will keep you informed in the period leading up to the race.


An “escapade in the Ardennes”… ! 160km or 80km through the best that the Ardennes have to offer.

Set out on a bold course to get away from the daily round, escape from it all and dream about wide open spaces to be discovered on foot.

On both sides of the Belgo-Luxembourg border, in the midst of the central Ardennes, you will discover 160 km of trails leading you from small discrete discoveries – an ancient cross, dry stone walls, streams… – to vast views!

Gossamer mists, peaceful dairy pastures, the fleeting appearance of a deer, a freshly mown meadow filling the air with a pleasant fragrance – a wealth of impressions and images so that the memory of your “escapade in the Ardennes” will stay with you!
