My 4Days is an online environment in which each participant can view or change his or her personal details. Please note: you cannot register for the 4Days Marches in My 4Days. You can register via our online registration module. This can be reached via this website during the registration period.
You can register for the 4Days Marches online. During the registration period, you will find a link to the registration module on this website. Registration is open until 25 March (17.00 hrs CET).
All being well, this should be self-explanatory. If you have previously participated in the 4Days Marches, you can log in with your registration number and password. If this is the first time you are registering to take part in the 4Days Marches, you start the registration process by creating an account.
The module then works more or less like an online shop, with your registration automatically being placed in your shopping cart. You can then choose to add other items to your cart, like a certificate or LOWA goods for example. After you have agreed to our terms and conditions, you can place your order.
If you are assured of getting a place, you will be automatically redirected to the payment environment. If you are not assured of getting a place, you must wait after placing your order until the results of the draw are known.
If you registered and paid your registration fee for the 4Days Marches in 2020, you are assured of a place in the 2022 event and do not have to take part in the draw. Of course, you must remember to register on time and to pay the registration fee that applies this year.
If you were not registered for the 4Days Marches in 2020 and/or did not pay your registration fee in 2020, you are not assured of a place and will need to wait to hear the results of the draw, which will be announced on Friday 25 March. Of course, you must remember to register on time.
When you register for the 4Days 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 4Days. Please state this number when you register or when you contact us. This way we can retrieve your personal details and previous participations and help you in a sufficient manner.
If you have ever successfully completed the 4Days 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 Service Desk in writing stating 'previous participation'. We will then send you a questionnaire that will enable us to find you in our archives. When you are - in your opinion, unjustly - registered for reward 1 and there is a chance that you will therefore be in a possible draw, you can contact the Service Desk for archive research. If your request has been received by us before 13 March, we can make sure that it will be under consideration in time, i.e. before the draw.
When you open My 4Days you can see a white button with the red text ‘Forgot password?. If you click this button, you can enter your registration number, date of birth and email address. If the details you enter correspond with our administration you will receive an automatically generated email with a link to reset your new password within a few minutes.
After requesting a new password in My 4Days you should receive an automatically generated email with a link to reset your new password within a few minutes. It is possible that such messages are detected as spam and therefore will be placed in your spam folder. If you are not receiving an email, we advise you to check your spam folder to see if that message is placed in there. If you cannot find the email there, please contact the Service Desk.
Please make sure you are using your most recently changed password. This password has to contain a minimum of 8 characters, of which at least 1 capital letter, 1 lower case letter, 1 numeric character and 1 special character. The password is case-sensitive, so please check if ‘Caps Lock’ on your keyboard is not activated. You could also try to log in using a different browser or device.
In My 4Days 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 Service Desk in writing stating 'previous participation'. We will take your request under review, although these requests will not be answered during the week of the 4Days Marches. Requests submitted before 30 June can be processed in time for the coming 4Days Marches.
The 4Days Marches are organised mostly by volunteers. Prior to and during the 4Days Marches hundreds volunteers are doing their work. Click here for more information on becoming a volunteer.

For the past two years The Alternative 4Days Marches has been the successful alternative to the 4Days Marches with over 20,000 participants. This year, we are not involved in the organization of The Alternative 4Days Marches. However, Royal Dutch Walking Association KWbN will continue this initiative in 2022. Please visit www.wandel.nl/alternatieve-vierdaagse or the Alternative 4Days Marches of 2022.
Yes, you will get your registration fee back in case of cancellation of the 2022 4Days Marches due to the COVID pandemic.
Please note: this only applies when the 4Days Marches is cancelled by the organisation. If you are unable to participate in the 4Days Marches yourself due to COVID-related circumstances, it is not possible to cancel and get a refund after the cancellation period has passed. You can cancel your registration up to 14 days from the date we receive your payment.
Whether or not the 4Days Marches will go ahead this year depends on whether Stichting DE 4DAAGSE obtains a permit to organise the 4Days Marches. This depends on the COVID-19 restrictions that are in place when a decision is made on the permit application.
During the week of the 4Days Marches we will adhere to government guidelines that apply at that time.
You can cancel your registration up to 14 days from the date we receive your payment and your fee will then be refunded in full.

The 4Daagse attracts participants from more than 70 countries. Unfortunately, it is impossible for our organization to keep up with the restrictions of all these countries. The responsibility for this lies with the participant himself. Registration is open until Friday 25 March 17.00 hrs CET. That gives you the opportunity to wait for a while and take the current situation into account.
In 2021 the 4Days Marches was cancelled for this reason. In 2022, this will probably be the same. Though there is good scope for taking measures for the walkers at the start and finish area, social distancing presents problems along the route, as well as for the spectators.
We must take into account the attraction of the 4Days Marches to the general public: monitoring and enforcing social distancing at the largest event in the Netherlands is very challenging. Another consideration is whether the 4Days Marches can really be the 4Days Marches without the festivities and the support of the spectators along the routes.

The Vierdaagsefeesten are not organised by Stichting De 4DAAGSE, but by Stichting Vierdaagsefeesten. Just like us, Stichting Vierdaagsefeesten is optimistic about a summer in which we can once again make a big party in Nijmegen. For more information, visit the website of the Vierdaagsefeesten.
During the week of the 4Days Marches we will adhere to government guidelines regarding COVID-19 that apply at that time. At the moment, it is not yet known what measures will be in place in the third week of July. We will inform you as soon as possible once more is known.

The 2020 4Days Marches was cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. All participants who were registered and paid their fees in 2020 are assured of a place in the 4Days Marches in 2022 and thus will not have to take part in the draw. It is not possible to transfer this guaranteed participation to 2023.
We understand that you want to carefully consider your participation in the 4Days Marches. Fortunately, you have a few weeks to do this. Registration for the 104th 4Days Marches is open from Monday 14 February (10.00 hrs CET) to Friday 25 March (17.00 hrs CET).
In 2020 and 2021, large-scale events in July were not allowed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That is why the 4 Days Marches could unfortunately not take place in these years.
