The 5th Way

Ages ago I published my 4 favourite running routes, which to date still remain my top training tracks. Since I got to prepare again for the "20 kilometers of Brussels" in May, and recently I became member of the "Zeilclub Hofstade", today I ventured direction Mechelen to test my luck in the forested domain surrounding the sailing club. Indeed as it turned out, the BLOSO domain "Hofstade", and in extension prinsenveld and Schiplakenbos (forest) up to the vaartdijk (canal) are a great place to burn calories, with hardly any traffic, and plenty of soft running ground (while not too muddy). The entire loop is about 8 to 10 kilometers.
