Inseparably bound to one another

Since its foundation in 2009, Logus-De Hoop, subsidiary of De Hoop Terneuzen, has been the title sponsor of the Logus-De Hoop Marathon Zeeuws-Vlaanderen. This fantastic event, which started out as a relatively small, local marathon, has grown to become one of national renown. A wonderful and laid-back nature marathon in beautiful, hospitable Zeelandic Flanders. The growing number of participants each year confirms the popularity of the marathon, which runs between Hulst and Terneuzen. Logus-De Hoop Marathon Zeeuws-Vlaanderen is a marathon that we, as head sponsor, and all of Zeelandic Flanders and indeed Zeeland, can be proud of.

The Marathon Zeeuws-Vlaanderen foundation has laid out a lovely and varied marathon trajectory. The surroundings and running surfaces ensure there’s variation. Approximately one-third is run on unpaved roads, most of which go through nature reserves. Many villages and hamlets have been included in the trajectory, as well. Particularly beautiful stretches are the Clingse and Steense forests, and the Westerscheldedijk dike with its beautiful panoramic views out over the water.

The Marathon Zeeuws-Vlaanderen changes directions each year: in even-numbered years, it runs from Hulst to Terneuzen; in odd-numbered years, it runs from Terneuzen to Hulst.

In 2019, the first Wandelmarathon Zeeuws-Vlaanderen (a walking marathon) started in Terneuzen. A stream of 2,000 walkers set off through the Zeelandic Flemish landscape. For many people, it was a real experience. Of course, our colleagues also took part in this walking marathon.
