The surroundings of Sneek and the beautiful Snitser Mar are made for walking! The three walking courses of the Mar-athon SNeek will take you along picturesque Frisian villages and through the summer green landscape. Walk with us and discover the unique water-rich environment of Súdwest-Fryslân.

42 km (Mar-athon) 

From the more than 400-year-old Waterpoort, the Mar-athon course walks along the Sneeker canals towards the Rasterhoffpark and Uitwellingerga. Over the dike along the Jentsjemar, through the grass-land towards 'Rufus aan het water'. Here you will cross the Noarder Alde Wei with a ferry and sail boats. Then along the Zwettepoel, via Goingarijp over the shell path along the Sneekermeer in the direction of Terherne. At Terherne you will find the starting location for the 21,1 kilometers (Half Mar-athon).

21 km (Half Mar-athon)

Terherne, surrounded by water with the lake of Sneek on one side and the Terhernster poelen on the other side, will be the starting location of the 21,1 km (Half Mar-athon). Participants will be transported to the starting location by shuttle bus. Along the way will have nice stops at places such as icecream farm Boereiis and Marina Sneekerhof. Here you can relax while enjoying live music, but also delicious refreshments such as coffee, tea, fruit or ice cream.

7,5 km

This is a great distance for lovers of the short distances, but also very well suited for the less trained walker who still would like to experience the atmosphere of Sneek during the Mar-athon Sneek. The start is at a nice recreational area called 'De Potten'. Participants will be transported to the starting location by shuttle bus. After a nice walk, all distances finish together at the Mar-tiniplein in the center of Sneek, where you can reminisce about your achievements at the Midzo-mar-Festival together.
