The International Four Days Marches Nijmegen; The Walk of the World

Johan Willemstein, Chairman Stichting DE 4DAAGSE, sounds the gong to celebrate the start of the 101st Four Days Marches.

The Four Days Marches are a walking achievement event for four consecutive days, in which annually tens of thousands walkers are participating. On those days, people from all over the world come to Nijmegen to walk in and around the city and its beautiful wooded surroundings. Hundreds of thousands of spectators are cheering on the walkers along the route every day. After four days of walking, a glorious entry along the Via Gladiola awaits the walkers, followed by the distribution of their well-deserved Four Days Medal. In 2017 at the 101st edition of the event, some 45,000 participants will attend. From some 70 countries participants come to Nijmegen to walk four days respectively 30, 40 or 50  kilometers per day. The 101th edition of the Four Days Marches will start Tuesday 18 April at 4 a.m.
