A festive welcome

Friday is the day of the entry along Via Gladiola. Carried by the cheers and applause of about a hundred thousand spectators, the last kilometres towards the finish line are a dazzling, musical celebration. Marching, swinging or stumbling, every participant in the 4Days Marches is overwhelmed by the waves of enthusiasm coming from either side.

Grandstands for the entry

The entry over the spectator-packed Via Gladiola is the highlight for walkers and onlookers alike. You can be there too. From the grandstands set up on Sint Annastraat, Keizer Karelplein, Oranjesingel and Prins Bernhardstraat, you can watch as the colourful procession of walkers passes. Encourage them with your cheers and applause: as they say ‘the last mile is the longest’. Together we will ensure a grand finale!

Meet & Greet

After the last kilometres along Via Gladiola comes the finish at De Wedren. This area is accessible only to our walkers on Friday: otherwise it would be too crowded and we could not ensure everyone’s safety. We set up a special Meet & Greet zone next to De Wedren, where family and friends of the walkers are welcome to greet them as they arrive. So, you can arrange to meet there.
