Is it necessary to register as early as possible?

No, by establishing registration periods the exact moment of registering does not matter provided one registers within the time limits of the periods.

What is my registration number and where can I find it?

When you register for the Four Days Marches for the first time you will be allocated an unique and personal registration number that will be linked to your name and other data. This registration number consists of a maximum of six digits. When you do not know your registration number you can request it at My Four Days. Use this number when you register or when you contact Stichting DE 4DAAGSE.

My reward in My Four Days Marches does not correspond with my number of successful participations. What should I do?

In My Four Days you can find the last reward awarded to you as registered by us. If this does not correspond with the last reward you received, you can contact the Central Administration in writing stating 'previous participation'. If you submit your request no later than 1 June, we can process the request before the Four Days Marches start.

I am planning to participate in the Four Days Marches again, after a break of several years. Am I still in your database?

If you have ever successfully completed the Four Days Marches, and it cannot be found in our digital database, then we should be able to find you in our archives. Our filing clerk is eager to find out what reward you received when you last successfully completed the marches, ensuring you will receive the correct reward for your next participation. You can contact the Central Administration in writing stating 'previous participation'. We will then send you a questionnaire that will enable us to find you in our archives. Requests that are submitted no later than 1 June will be processed before the coming Four Days Marches.

I want to walk less than my regulation distance. Is this possible?

The Four Days Marches are a walking achievement event and every participant is required to minimally walk their regulation distance. It is not possible to walk a non-regulation distance and waive a reward.
Participants with a disability, either physical or intellectual, and companions of children turning 12, 13, 14 or 15 in the year of participation, can appeal to the dispensation regulation of the Four Days Marches. This regulation is, however, not applicable to participants who cannot walk their regulation distance due to medical circumstances.

What is the best way to prepare for the Four Days Marches?

The Four Days Marches are a walking achievement event. Therefore, we believe it to be important that participants are well prepared. In the menu Preparation you will find several tips that will help you prepare.
