This spring we were forced to postpone the Sofico Gent Marathon until further notice, and we - as organisation – started looking for an alternative date in the autumn.
However, under the current circumstances it is no longer realistic to have an event in 2020 that is both festive and safe. Even though this is an enormous blow, it is the only right decision we can take. We – as a society – have to take our collective responsibility and comply with the measures taken by the government at this time. It will require joint and large-scale efforts to get COVID-19 under control. In addition, we - as an organisation – have to take our own responsibility to safeguard the health of the participants, volunteers, spectators and all other people involved.
On Sunday 28th March 2021, there will be a new edition of the Sofico Gent Marathon. Your registration will automatically transfer to the new edition. You do not have to do anything else for now. You are unable to attend on the new date? Then, you can transfer your registration to a friend, colleague, family member,.... until 09/03/2021. Please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org to do so. Please also get in touch if you are unable to take part on the new date for professional, medical or other pressing reasons and if you would like to request a credit voucher or refund of your registration fees. We would like to ask that you provide us with valid (third-party) proof of your personal pressing reason.
