Is the 4Days Marches possible as long as the 1.5 metre social distancing rule still applies?
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.
