Have you already got the 'rolling jitters'? Through the marked skating route you can skate along the most beautiful spots of Genk.
That's experiencing Genk in a different way
Skating shoes with little wheels underneath.
They’ve been around for a long time but have recently made a comeback – big time! And yes, Genk recently created its own skating route.
Starting at C-mine, Sport Vlaanderen Genk or SportinGenk Park, work out your route on the starting board. You can choose a short route of some 20 km or a long, 35-km route. You no longer need a GPS or map: simply follow the arrows.
You skate past C-mine, LABIOMISTA, Stadion Racing Genk, Thor Park, Molenvijver park and De Wijers.
Take the time to fully unwind by stopping off for a drink somewhere along the way.
You don’t need much for the skating route apart from your skates, protection and common sense.
Plan your route
- Starting point: C-mine (GPS: Evence Coppéelaan 91, parking 2).
- Connections to the route:
- Sport Vlaanderen Genk (GPS: Kattevennen 15).
- SportinGenk park (GPS: E. Van Dorenlaan 144)
Follow the signs for the 20 km or 34 km course. Both the short and long skating route have the form of a loop, so you always arrive at the place where you started.
