  • Medals

    The medals, which were made during the period that the Four Days Marches Apeldoorn was organized under the flag of the NWB, are running out. This is already the case for a number of distances.

    It requires a huge investment to continue on the same footing. The stamping costs alone are at least € 75,000.- and then stock still has to be made. In total about € 100,000.- is needed to pay for that and that money is not there. In addition, more and more participants indicate that they do not want a medal. That is why the board of the current organization has chosen to follow a different system.

    The new medals only state the number of times the Four Days Marches Apeldoorn have been walked.

  • Can I (re)fill my drinking bottle on the way?

    Yes, we will install a water tap at the large rest areas this year. The 12 km passes here once, the other distances twice.
