All about The Nijmegen Marches

**Please note, all details below refer to the 2024 event.**

How far is it?

The total distance is 160KM over 4 days... we walk 40km each day!


This is a Team Challenge!

There are strict rules about taking part. The entire group has to walk as a team each day. We must start and finish together, as well as pass through a number of check points! This team element, not only adds another level to the challenge, it is also part of what makes Nijmegen, Nimegen. Start as a team... finish as a family...


Hotel and Travel

Our Walkers spoke and we listened...


In 2024, the Team will be staying at an all new venue, Center Parcs Het Heijderbos situated near Heijen, which is approx. 30 - 40 minutes from the start of the Marches in Nijmegen. 


Taking part in the Nijmegen Marches means an early start each morning. But not to worry, Walk the Walk have you covered with transport both to and from the Start and Finish line each day. 


Getting There

We suggest that you book a flight to Amsterdam where you will be able to take a train to Nijmegen, from here you can either pick up a taxi to the hotel around 40 mins away or you may choose to change and hop on a train to Boxmeer from where you can grab a taxi to the hotel around 15 mins away.

The team will meet officially for the first time at the hotel on Monday morning! The exact time will be confirmed by the Events Team closer to the time...


Eating and Drinking during the Marches

Start your day right... with a VIP Breakfast at De Wedren included within your package from Tuesday 16th - Friday 19th July each day of the race!

We tend to take a packed lunch from breakfast with us, but along the route, you will also find lots of stalls with farmers selling juicy watermelons and delicious nibbles to keep you going. There are also lots of supportive locals handing out cucumber, cheese, biscuits, crisps, and liquorice sweets, which are a local delicacy... you won't go hungry!

A buffet dinner at the Evergreenz is also included within your package from Monday 15th - Thursday 18th July... plus 2-hours of drinks included*

Training for The Nijmegen Marches

It's a long way but don't worry we have you covered! Walk the Walk has been training teams for the last 25 years so we know exactly what you have to do!

For this challenge you will need to commit to training; A 14 week Training Plan will be sent out with your Walker Pack... it is intense and has consecutive training walks, so can be time-consuming. The Training Plan is like this so that your body is prepared to walk 40km distances over 4 consecutive days at a good walking speed. Alongside this, we also recommend taking part in other exercises such as swimming, weight training or pilates to increase your overall level of fitness. 

The route is generally tarmac through towns and villages, with some small parts off-road, on footpaths and trails. The weather in Nijmegen is generally dry and can get hot, however, rain does fall!

The Marches were like nothing else I’ve ever experienced... such a wonderful and one-of-a-kind event- Laura

PXL 20230718 052637031.MP

I loved the fact that we would be starting and finishing the walk every day as a team... I have never been prouder of such a strong group of people – some of whom had also been diagnosed with cancer. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! - Mike
