Running for a cause

Under the motto “Running for a Cause, Connecting for Success”, BUSINESSrun extends a warm invitation to runners for the 57th BUSINESSrun during AntwerpXL.


Antwerp, a city renowned for its historical charm, is set to host AntwerpXL, a platform for the breakbulk industry. After a successful second edition, AntwerpXL is set to return in 2023, uniting the breakbulk community once more to showcase cutting-edge technology and foster relevant connections.

Under the motto ‘Running for a Cause, Connecting for Success, BUSINESSrun invites both visitors and exhibitors to participate in the 57th BUSINESSrun.

The 57rd BUSINESSrun kicks off on November 29th, 2023, at 7:30 am, welcoming runners of all experience levels to explore the picturesque city of Antwerp through 4K or 9K routes.

Participants are encouraged to arrive by 7:10 am for a unique pre-run experience, including the collection of running shirt made of recycled waste plastics and engaging in pre-networking activities. A professional running coach will lead warm-up exercises, ensuring everyone is ready for the run ahead.

The run concludes at TEJO, where refreshments await the participants. The event wraps up around 9 am, offering ample time for networking with co-runners and sponsors.

BUSINESSrun isn’t just a run, as runners will experience a unique blend of business, running and networking while surrounded by a beautiful setting.

The participation fee of EUR 50,00 is not used to cover costs, but to serve a greater cause.  TEJO, a local charity supporting young individuals aged 10-20 in Antwerp, will benefit from the donations. Learn more about TEJO’s impactful work at
