From Saturday 27th March, the supplies at the Sofico Ghent Marathon will look slightly different. The City of Ghent is asking participants to only use reusable cups from now on.

So, runners will not have to bring their own reusable cup. The Sofico Ghent Marathon organisation will hand out water and sports drinks in reusable cups from the supply stations along the course. After use, you can deposit the cups in the bins placed 150 metres after each supply station.

Obviously, you can also bring your own cup or other container. Our members of staff at the supply station will also be more than happy to fill your water bottle or canteen. Throwing cups or other rubbish on the street is of course out of the question!
