Drongen is a district of Ghent located on the west side of the Ringvaart. It’s a good opportunity to get in some pastoral running close to town! There are quiet roads past fields and farms, and a path along the section of the Leie river that flows through the area. The Dijkweg is a road that runs along the river south of the train tracks. Although there’s no separate path or shoulder, it’s a relatively quiet road and pleasant for running.

Using the attached Google Map, we suggest creating your own route, weaving around the quiet roads & paths, including some river sections.

Add-On: Drongen can be part of a longer run that includes the Blaarmeersen and Watersportbaan route, as it is just west of this area.
