Which distance can I walk in 2019?

The Four Days Marches are a walking achievement event. What this achievement entails is described in our regulations. One of the most important conditions for participation is that each participant has to walk at least the applicable regulation distance for four consecutive days. The Four Days Marches has three distances: 30, 40 and 50 kilometers.

There are three different distances in the Four Days Marches: 30, 40 and 50km. 

Regulation distance

The tables below show the distance(s) you can participate in, based on your gender and year of birth. In the year of participation, the participant must turn at least 12 years old. The distance marked with an R is the minimum distance for which you must register and is determined on the basis of your age and gender. This minimum distance is called the regulation distance. It is NOT possible to walk a distance shorter than the regulation distance, but it is possible to choose a longer distance. 

Extended distance

The distances marked with an E are other distances for which you may register, but these distances are not compulsory for your age and gender. This is why we call these distances extended distances.

Please note: once the Four Days Marches have 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.

Changing the distance

You can change the distance for which you are registered by logging on to My Four Days. You can change this free of charge until Thursday 11 July. After this date, changes to the distance can only be made on Sunday 14 or Monday 15 July at the Central Administration at the start and finish location, for a €15 fee.

Dispensation

The Four Days Marches are a walking achievement event, in which the gravity of the achievement obliges the participant to prepare him- or herself sufficiently to the event by means of training. In certain cases people with disability, either physical or intellectual, can appeal to the dispensation regulation of the Four Days Marches in order for them to walk less kilometres a day than the regulation distance that applies to them states. These special circumstances are affiliated to the internationally established standards in sports for people with a disability. This regulation is, however, not applicable to participants who cannot walk their regulation distance due to medical circumstances (e.g. illness). Dispensation requests can be submitted in writing after your registration has been accepted and have to be received by Stichting DE 4DAAGSE by 15 June at the latest.

Participants in a wheelchair

Participants, who as a result of chronic loss of movement of the lower limbs are confined to a wheelchair, can request dispensation to be awarded the Four Days Medal. This dispensation will be granted only under certain circumstances, the most important being that the participant has to use a classic, non-motorised, non-sports, hand rim wheelchair (ADL) during the length of the Four Days Marches. Requests for dispensation can be submitted in writing after your registration for the Four Days Marches has been accepted and need to be received by Stichting DE 4DAAGSE by 15 June at the latest.
