When you register for the 4Days Marches, we process your personal data. This is essential for your registration and for arranging the reward you will be presented with on Friday. We always handle your personal data with care. We never ask for more information from you than we need and only use it where necessary.
The 4Days Marches is a walking performance event, in which the performance to be delivered by the participant forces him or her to prepare sufficiently for the event through training. In some special situations, people with a mental and/or physical disability can apply for dispensation to walk less than the applicable regulatory distance. These special situations are in line with internationally recognized standards in sport for people with disabilities. This arrangement does not apply to participants who are unable to walk the regulatory distance due to medical conditions (illness). A request for dispensation can be submitted in writing (by email or post) after your registration for the 4Days Marches has been accepted and must be received by Stichting DE 4DAAGSE by 15 June at the latest.
Participants who are dependent on a wheelchair as a result of a chronic loss of function of the lower limbs, can apply for a dispensation in order to be eligible for the 4Days Marches Cross. This dispensation is only granted under certain conditions, which in any case is subject to the condition that the participant uses a classic, non-motorized manual wheelchair during the 4Days Marches. A request for dispensation can be submitted in writing (by email or post) after your registration for the 4Days Marches has been accepted and must be received by Stichting DE 4DAAGSE by 15 June at the latest.
