What you'll do

We will meet at the ARTEVELDE STATUE at Vrijdagsmarkt in the centre for a brief, where I will explain what this tour is about and also introduce myself. The tour starts with a warm up.

We will run (at a very gentle pace) and dance along the streets of Ghent and will enjoy all the sights while working out at the same time and have some fun. Please note that the music volume will be adjusted, depending on where we are running (open spaces vs residential areas). The music is varied and has everything from the 80 ies to contemporary dance and party music.

On the way we stop for photos, water breaks but especially dancing breaks. After this tour you will go home with many memories of Ghent and a feel good vibe :)

The rancing tour will end in the city centre.

***IMPORTANT*** Please check availability by sending a message first. This tour requires a MINIMUM of 4 PEOPLE as it is a GROUP ACTIVITY.

My name is Sophie and I am a 'RANCER'.

A what????

A rancer! I love running, am very passionate about dancing (and music) and doing these activities together is called rancing! Come and join me for a great and enjoyable activity where we explore Ghent in a unique and incredibly fun way. We run and make stops to dance through the streets of this vibrant capital of East Flanders (dress ups are recommended), relax ourselves and leave all stress and worries behind while exploring the sights. And don't worry about your fitness level. This is for EVERYONE!

Sounds good? I look forward to seeing you soon! :)

If you prefer another language, I speak Nederlands, svenska, Deutsch and un peu francais.

This was such a unique and fun experience! It ended up being just Sophie and I, but that made it even better as she was able to customize the pace, the number of dance stops and we even went over time a bit because we were having so much fun! Sophie was very knowledgeable about the history of Ghent! Running around on my own, I would have seen the sights, but not gotten the history of all the buildings, statues and area. On dance stops we had multiple people stop to join us in the streets and it brought me so so much joy to just have that, “I don’t care life is too short”, attitude. I took the wrong train stop and ended up meeting up with Sophie an hour late and I felt terrible, but she was so understanding and calm about the whole situation - it put me at ease and I was able to have fun! I recommend this unique experience to anyone looking to get a good background of Ghent and some exercise! This is by no means a sprint - this is a casual jog that all levels can enjoy.

Running with Sophie was a unique and super fun way to experience Ghent. She was caring and constantly checked back to ensure was comfortable and having fun at the same time. Look forward to rancing again with Sophie in other parts of the world too!
