Walking around Nijmegen
The Four Days Marches have a different route each day; through the landscapes of Dutch provinces of Gelderland, Brabant and Limburg, through the city of Nijmegen and its outskirts. Every walking day revolves around a different town in the vicinity of Nijmegen. The first day is otherwise called the day of Elst, the second day the day of Wijchen, the third the day of Groesbeek and finally the fourth day the day of Cuijk.
During the Four Days Marches the routes are signposted by means of coloured arrows. The colours of these arrows are equal to the colour of the wrist band. Participants who walk the 50km follow the red arrows, participants on the 40km follow the yellow arrows, military participants (starting from Heumensoord) follow the green arrows and participants on the 30km follow the blue arrows. For each walking day there is a route map.
Would you like to prepare yourself for the Four Days Marches by walking the route before the Marches start on the third Tuesday in July?
