The Gentlewomen’s Club is setting up a team for this year’s 20k of Brussels race.

In 2015, out of all participants in the Brussels semi-marathon, only 27% were women. We have decided to do our part in balancing this out.

“Like a girl” is often used offensively That is why we invite all girls, boys, women, men to join this year’s “Run like a girl” team, to take a stand against stereotypes.

If you want to join the team, please send an email to by March 23rd and we will follow up.

This year, we are running for Plan International’s campaign “Because I am a girl”.

Did you know that:

– 120 million girls have experienced sexual violence?

– 15 million girls marry each year before 18?

– 2 million girls give birth under 15 each year?

‘Because I am a girl’ is a global movement driven by Plan International to ensure girls everywhere can learn, lead, decide and thrive.

Your donation will support Plan International’s vital work to advance children’s rights and equality for girls. And we’ll run that much faster for it!
