Which distance can I walk in 2022?

The 4Days Marches is a walking achievement event. What the achievement is exactly, is described in our regulations. One of the main conditions is that as a participant you must walk at least the distance you are required to walk according to the regulations on four consecutive days. There are three different distances in the 4Days Marches: 30, 40 and 50 kilometres. Once more is known about the regulation distances for the 104th 4Days Marches, we will post the updated information on this page.

More info

The minimum distance is called the regulation distance. It is not possible to walk a distance shorter than your regulation distance, though you can register to walk a longer distance. This distance is called the extended distance.

You can change the distance you have registered for via My 4Days. You can make the change without charge up to the end of the week before the 4Days Marches event starts. After this date, changes to the distance can only be made on Sunday 17 or Monday 18 July at the Central Administration desk at the start/finish grounds. You will need to pay a fee for this.

Please note that once the 4Days Marches has begun, you can no longer change the distance you will be walking. You must then walk the full distance you are registered for on each of the four days.

The 4Day Marches has an achievement element and for the participant to be able to deliver the performance required, he or she must be adequately trained and prepared. In some exceptional circumstances, a person with physical or intellectual disability may apply for dispensation in accordance with the Regulations Governing Dispensation [dispensatieregeling] to allow them to walk less than the regulation distance each day. Such exceptional circumstances are in keeping with the internationally recognised norms for sports participation of people with disability. This ruling does not apply for participants unable to walk the regulation distance owing to medical circumstances (illness). A dispensation request may be submitted (by email or post) once your registration for the 4Day Marches has been accepted and must reach the Stichting DE 4DAAGSE by no later than 15 June.

Participants who depend on a wheelchair as a result of the permanent loss of function of the lower limbs can apply for a dispensation in order to participate and be eligible for the 4Days Marches Cross. This dispensation is only granted under certain conditions, the main one of which is that the participant must make use of a classic, self-propelled (i.e. non-motorised) manual wheelchair during the 4Days Marches. A dispensation request may be submitted (by email or post) once your registration for the 4Day Marches has been accepted and must reach the Stichting DE 4DAAGSE by no later than 15 June.
