Registration military detachments

The 104th 4Days Marches will take place from 19-22 July 2022. Registration is closed.

Delegation countries

International military participants who have the nationality of one of the official delegation countries named below are not permitted to use the registration module on this website. They may only register via their delegation's contact person:

If you have the nationality of one of the delegation countries, but want to participate in the 4Days Marches with a mixed detachment (an international detachment that includes participants with different nationalities), you can register via this website. Please follow the registration procedure as described below.

Small Contingents

All international military participants who don't belong to the military forces of one of the official delegation countries mentioned above, are considered to be participants of the Small Contingents.

Step 1: register individually

If you want to participate in the 4Days Marches with a military detachment, you must first register individually, indicating that you intend to participate with a detachment. Click the button below to see all the information on registering as an individual military participant. The page also has a link to the online registration module.

Step 2: form a detachment

Once the registration period has closed, the detachment commander can start forming the detachment. This can be done on My 4Days from May up to 17.00 hrs CET on 30 June. A detachment consists of a minimum of 11 and a maximum of 41 military participants who are registered and who have paid their registration fee for the 104th 4Days Marches. No changes to the group can be made after 17.00 hrs CET on 30 June.

Requirements

Participation as a detachment is subject to a number of additional conditions. Firstly, all detachment members are expected to stay at Camp Heumensoord. All detachments also start from Heumensoord and therefore walk the military 40km route. Depending on your age and gender, you can walk this route with or without 10 kilos of marching kit. You can read more about this on the Distances page.

During the 4Days Marches, it is also important that you clearly show that you belong together! So wear recognizable uniforms and walk together in detachment on all days. It is up to the detachment commander to ensure that all conditions are met during the 4Days Marches.

You can find more information about the conditions that a detachment must meet to participate in the 4Days Marches in the Regulations for military participants.

Dutch military participants

Military participants with the Dutch nationality can also register online. Please visit the Dutch version of this page for more information about registration as a Dutch military participant.

More info

The registration fee for the 104th 4Days Marches is €104. For military participants from the Small Contingents, staying at Camp Heumensoord costs €300. You will find more information on the registration fee, the method of payment, and when you can expect your starting ticket on the Payment and confirmation page.

For military participants walking with a detachment, staying at Camp Heumensoord is mandatory during the 4Days Marches. For more information about Camp Heumensoord and the other facilities provided by the Central Military Support Command (CMSC, CVM in Dutch), please click here or send an email to 4daagse@mindef.nl if you have any further questions.

It is possible to book your stay at Heumensoord via My 4Days until 29 April.

All detachments are obliged to walk the military 40 km route that starts from Heumensoord. Depending on your age and gender, you can walk this route with or without 10 kilos of marching kit. You can read more about this on the Distances page.

When the number of military servicemen and women from the Small Contingents exceeds the limit of 500 registrations, a draw will be held on Monday 4 April.

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. The Restriction protocol explains who is not assured of a place and so will be entered in the draw.

Military participants who have the nationality of one of the official delegation countries are subject to different registration procedures. Please contact your delegation’s contact person for more information.

The detachment commander is the contact person of the detachment and handles all correspondence with the organisation. The detachment commander has the important task of forming the detachment on My 4Days from May onward. In addition, during the 4Days Marches, he or she ensures that the detachment complies with all regulations and is responsible for the detachment at all times.
