I am planning to participate in the Four Days Marches again, after a break of several years. Am I still in your database?


If you have ever successfully completed the Four Days Marches, and it cannot be found in our digital database, then we should be able to find you in our archives. Our filing clerk is eager to find out what reward you received when you last successfully completed the marches, ensuring you will receive the correct reward for your next participation. You can contact the Central Administration in writing stating 'previous participation'. We will then send you a questionnaire that will enable us to find you in our archives.
When you are - in your opinion, unjustly - registered for reward 1 and there is a chance that you will therefore be in a possible draw, you can contact the Central Administration for archive research. If your request has been received by us before 9 March, we can make sure that it will be under consideration in time, i.e. before the draw.

My reward in My Four Days does not correspond with my number of successful participations. What should I do?


In My Four Days you can find the last reward awarded to you as registered by us. If this does not correspond with the last reward you received, you can contact the Central Administration in writing stating 'previous participation'. We will take your request under review, although these requests will not be answered during the Four Days week. Requests submitted before 30 June can be processed in time for the coming Four Days Marches.

Participation

I want to walk less than my regulation distance. Is this possible?


The Four Days Marches are a walking achievement event and every participant is required to minimally walk their regulation distance. It is not possible to walk a non-regulation distance and waive a reward.
Participants with a disability, either physical or intellectual, and companions of children turning 12, 13, 14 or 15 in the year of participation, can appeal to the dispensation regulation of the Four Days Marches. This regulation is, however, not applicable to participants who cannot walk their regulation distance due to medical circumstances.

Information on accommodation during the Four Days Marches can be found on the page Accommodation in the menu Transport & Housing.
