A unique opportunity to take part in the largest walking challenge in the world!
19 – 22 July 2022
The International Four Day Marches Nijmegen (or Vierdaagse – meaning Four Days) is the largest marching event in the world, held in Nijmegen (Netherlands).
Join civilians and military teams from all over the world
Since 1916, in July over 45,000 civilians and military teams march 30km, 40km or 50 km through the beautiful and historic towns and villages surrounding Nijmegen. Over 4 days and 4 different routes you will be supported by over 1 million people lining the streets to encourage and support you.
On completion you receive the Dutch royalty approved medal (Vierdaagsekruis)
Also known as ‘The Walk of the World’!
You can choose to complete either the 30, 40km or 50km route (restrictions may require you to complete a certain distance to receive your medal.)
For 2022 we are putting together a Civilian Team which gives you guaranteed entry to the marches.
Our exclusive package includes your race entry along with accommodation, breakfast, support and all transfers at the destination. Price for this package is £865 per person.
