From the historic center of Oldenzaal, various distances are run that lead across the hilly outer area. Main distance is the half marathon. In addition to the well-known Twentsen hills, such as the Tankenberg and the Paasberg, the runners are also guided along famous tourist attractions.

The HalveMarathonOldenzaal is pure promotion of Twente. The run differs from other events in the running calendar in the type of course. Enjoying nature on the move will be more important to many than a fast end time.
