Over a Century of walking

There is simply nothing like the Nijmegen Marches, in 2020 it will be their 104th year. A famous Military March where, in July each year, people from all over the world come to Nijmegen (Netherlands) to walk in and around the city, through idyllic towns and villages. You will be walking alongside Military Marching Teams; formed of the Swiss Navy, French Police, Marine’s and of course the British Bobbies, who will all be walking in their uniformed kit, and we will walk in ours – our famous bra t-shirts!

The support is immense… thousands of spectators are cheering you on every day. On the 4th and final day of walking you will enter the amazing Via Gladiola, where, as you head to the finish, you are handed ‘Gladioli’ from the crowds, a traditional sign of your amazing accomplishment. Onward's to the finish and well-deserved Royally acclaimed Four Days Nijmegen Cross medal.
