The Nijmegen Marches



Wonderful, a unique experience which I may find addictive!  The event is wonderful and unique - I did not realise it would be so well supported by the Dutch people.  I am at risk of becoming addicted to it!

Join us!

Come and join Walk the Walk as we take on the ‘Challenge of all Challenges’. Conquering the Marches is not for the faint-hearted and will require a commitment to training; you will walk a staggering 40k or 50k a day over 4 consecutive days.

Each day you will be supported by 1000’s of cheering supporters all willing you to the finish and your well-deserved Royally-acclaimed Nijmegen Cross!

This is the 98th year and, because everyone wants to be part of the centenary year, it is more popular than ever!

Walk the Walk have a large team taking part in the 40K distance for The Marches: it's not too late for you to join us too!

For those that are looking for a place, you can choose to either...

  • Join the Walk the Walk Team completing 40K each day
  • Apply for a ballot place as an individual taking on 40K or 50K each day
  • Set up your own team walking 50K each day (email Kate for information)

However there are a couple of stipulations...
For MEN with a date of birth between 1965 and 1995, in accordance with the rules of The Marches, you have to undertake 50K and therefore you HAVE to apply for a ballot place.

If you already have a place and wish to join the Walk the Walk Team, then you can do so by completing the form for your accommodation and daily travel requirements.

For any walkers entering as a team are guaranteed a place. All individuals go into the ballot and places are not in guaranteed.

SOLD OUT for 2014.

I loved the Marches, I thought they were fantastic.  I will go back next year …. As an event for WTW it is challenging and different and should always carry on.  I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
