2020 Four Days Marches cancelled

On 21 April, the Dutch government announced an extension of the corona measures in the Netherlands. Unfortunately, this extension means that the 2020 Four Days Marches will definitively not take place.

For a long time, we had hoped the measures would have had effect in time for the Four Days Marches to take place safely. This would have been a wonderful way to conclude a difficult few months for both the Netherlands and the rest of the world.
Although we increasingly took the scenario into account, the definitive cancellation is difficult for us. Naturally, everyone’s safety is paramount, but we also know that tens of thousands of walkers were very much looking forward to the 104th Four Days Marches. A cancellation is necessary, and understandable, but it also brings disappointment.
This disappointment is also felt by all our employees, volunteers, partners, sponsors, suppliers, and everyone else who embraces the Four Days Marches. Everyone has worked hard, invested much, and looked forward to our beautiful event in July. It is therefore very unfortunate that the Four Days Marches are cancelled.

As the Four Days Marches organisation, we work all year round to prepare for our beautiful event, which generates costs. Unfortunately, we will not be able to refund the full registration fee. Thanks to the support of our partners, suppliers, and sponsors, we will be able to refund approximately € 60 of the € 100 registration fee to our participants.
In the coming weeks, we will be working hard on the final implications of the cancellation. We will contact our participants within several weeks, they do not have to take any action themselves. We will return the refundable part of the registration fee before the end of June.

For now, we wish everybody all the best. Stay healthy, and keep walking, because we would love to see you all on the Via Gladiola next year.

Kind regards,
Board of the Four Days Marches
