- Starting in waves enhances the running experience for all participants.
- Take your time and only arrive at the start 15 minutes before the start time of your wave. Please check the opening times of the start zones above.
- The organisation assigns the waves. At registration, you will be asked to state your estimated finish time.
- If you are registering as part of a group or business, you can choose to start as a participant “on the basis of the estimated finish time or performance of the previous year” or you can choose to start earlier “with the members of my group”. In the latter case, your group will be placed in a wave based on availability.
- Approximately 1 week before the event, the waves, and also the bib numbers, will be assigned. You can also find this in the online participant lists.
- Runners who finished amongst the first 1,250 in 2021 will automatically be assigned a low start number when registering online if they click “yes” next to “low start number”. That number will allow them to start at the front of wave 1 (13:30hrs).
- It will not be possible to start in an earlier wave. If a friend is running in an earlier wave, you will not be able to start with them in that earlier wave. After all, that would undermine the entire start system. So, there will be checks of the bib numbers which state your wave at the entrance of the start zone.
However, it will be possible to start together in a later wave. You do not have to do anything for that, you will be allowed to join a later wave with your bib number without any trouble.
Moreover, it has its benefits to start in a later wave. You can start smoothly and at ease, and there will be pacers – including for fast runners – in every wave.

Do you have a particular time in mind for the AG Antwerp 10 Miles? On Sunday 24th April, there will be a real pacer team waiting for you at the start to help you to achieve that time! A number of very experienced, mainly Belgian pacers have committed to be the 10 Miles pacers. The AG Antwerp 10 Miles wants to distinguish itself as a fast and flat road race. It is specifically for that purpose that two pacers per finish time have been invited to guide the runners to the finish. Pacers will be targeting the following times: 1hr10, 1hr20, 1hr30, 1hr40, 1hr50, 2hrs and 2hrs15. It will be easy to spot the pacers in the start zone by their coloured flags showing their finish time. In addition, every participant will receive a wristband showing the interval times you have to run per kilometre to hit your desired finish time. It is a handy reminder for your run, which you can just wear on your wrist! These bands can be collected for free from the exhibition and registration area on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
All participants who registered online beforehand (so up to and including 28th March) will receive a cool bib number with first name for both the 10 Miles and Short Run 6,8 km.
