Stage 5: Thorpark (Genk) – Kattevennen (Genk): 11 km

This short, flat connecting stage runs through the former Waterschei entrenchment to the Stiemerbeek valley, and then through extensive woodland. About halfway you pass a former children's colony, now a pleasant café/restaurant (De Kolonie). You cross the highway via the first 'Eco-recreaduct' in Flanders and after the golf course Spiegelven, you reach Kattevennen.
