Europe, Belgium

If you are planning to be in Brussels at Sunday 14 jump to the store and buy new sports equipment (you surely worn out the last year's... Yeah, right). OK, find shorts and snickers and you are ready for Brussels marathon. Along with the 42-kilometer run, you can try half the distance or mini marathon at 3 kilometers. The race will guide you through streets of Brussels and while it certainly is not the easiest way to see the city, it could bring you lot of fun. I recommend you to try: If you don't succeed, well, never mind, you'll have to work harder at the gym.

October 13 - 20, 2007
Australia, Adelaide

And now, something completely different... One fine, beautiful, tasteful and fragrant event on the other side of the world and you can call it marathon. I quote: "Tasting Australia promises eight days of the best in eating and drinking, blended with spicy discussion and cooking classes with many of the world's leading culinary masters." I see you smile... This is probably the marathon that suits you much better. Tasting Australia is held in Adelaide every two years, so now is the time for trip. Before I forget: Weather reporters announced showers. :-)

For Akihabara people said that it is perhaps the last stronghold in the world for classic arcade gaming.
