What time can I start?

Digital participant registration

All participants (including group participants and those in military contingents) will be given a wristband upon signing in. This wristband with barcode is used to register participants electronically at the start and finish.

Partitioning of start slots 30- and 40km

Every participant on the 30- and 40km is randomly assigned to the ‘Gladiola’ or the ‘Walking Shoe’ starting group. Both starting groups can use the first start slot for two days and the second start slot on the other two (or more) days. On your ticket you can see which starting group you are assigned to.

Start and finish area the Wedren

The start and finish area 'the Wedren' is divided into three places: the Wedren, the opposite Vierdaagseplein and adjoining Julianapark. Click here for a map of the start and finish area.

All individual participants on the 30, 40 and 50km-route start from the Wedren/Vierdaagseplein.

Civilian groups line up at the starting gate for groups in the Julianapark. The whole group must report to the start.

Start and finish area Heumensoord

Military detachments and individual military participants with starting location Heumensoord start from Heumensoord.

Waiting at the start

The organization is trying to spread the flow of walkers over the route in order to prevent congestion just after the start. Therefore the participants are not allowed to start all at once.

Of course, when tens of thousands participants have to start within in a timeframe of a couple hours it is not unlikely that participants will hinder each other. So, just like travelling with public transport or when in the supermarket, we would like to ask you to show some consideration for each other, and that you do not cut in line and that you wait your turn. Kindly address each other regarding inappropriate behaviour and try to arrange matters justly.

Problems with your wristband?

Your wristband is indispensable during the Four Days Marches, as you need the barcode both at the start in the morning and at the finish in the afternoon. The scanners must be able to read the print on the wristband. If you are unsure of your wristband code's legibility or if your wristband is broken, please go to the Central Administration (open from 3.30-17.00 hrs) at the Wedren. After verification of your details, you will receive a new wristband. To avoid problems, be sure to do so on time.

Participants starting from Heumensoord who have problems with the wristband prior to the start, can report to one of the starting team members. They will give you a temporary replacement wristband. At the end of the day, report to the Central Administration at Heumensoord, where - after verification of you details - you will receive a new wristband.
