It looks like Covid-19 will continue to be part of our society for a while longer. But we, the organisers, continue to have a positive outlook on the future and we have managed to devise a revised and safe format for the 2021 Sofico Ghent Marathon offering not one date, but several running dates between 20/03/2021 and 18/04/2021.
Loads of runners have been training hard over the last months. There is a great deal of enthusiasm and a strong urge to run. A great hunger for a physical event. We want to feed that hunger by offering this revised, safe format. A large-scale event in 1 day is no longer realistic nor is it a desirable scenario for many participants. That is why we are now opting for this alternative scenario as a positive and hopeful rush ahead.
Our organisation has devised a new format to guarantee maximum safety and comfort for our participants. Many of these measures are described in detail in these FAQ.
