Plogging

The Namur International Marathon wishes to register a little more in a sustainable development approach.

Also, in partnership with Can-Guru and “Wallonie Plus Propre”, we invite you to participate in a European premiere: a plogging on Saturday 11 May 2019 (the start time will be announced soon), the day before the marathon.

But, what is a plogging? This is the contraction of the verb "to pick up" in Swedish (plocka upp) and “jogging”. This new sports discipline, launched in Sweden, consists in running while collecting waste on your path.

Collecting trash during a jog by alternating fast-paced and slow-paced stages of training enables interval training. A particularly effective type of workout to improve running performance while eliminating calories and strengthening your heart.

Practical side :
  • Participation in the plogging is free ;
  • A "Can-Guru Plogg" bag will be lent to you (against an identity document) ;
  • A local gift and a drink (soft or Chimay dorée) will be offered just after the plogging at the Pasta Party.
