To slow down the spread of the COVID-19 virus in Belgium, federal and local authorities are enforcing extra measures such as the cancellation or postponement of mass events.
Golazo, the organization behind the Sofico Gent Marathon, has decided to postpone the Sofico Gent Marathon. In consultation with local authorities and other partners a new date will be selected. As soon as the date is finalized, we will communicate this via the Sofico Gent Marathon website.
If you are registered for the Sofico Gent Marathon, your registration remains valid. You will be able to run at the later date.
In light of the current COVID-19 outbreak, we feel this postponement is the right decision. We are pleased that all registered runners will still be able to enjoy the new course through the historic heart of Ghent and the Ghelamco arena later this year, when the first edition of the Sofico Gent Marathon will take place.
To whet your appetite until then, you can discover the course below.
