Short and long route
You get to choose between a walk of about 12 (short route) or about 20 km (long route). The short route is a great opportunity for novice runners to join in. You pass slightly fewer locations on this route than on the long route. You indicate your choice of distance during registration. This is to give us an indication; you are not stuck with this. During the run, you can change distances at the junction. Please note: always take into account the opening and closing times of the supply points and finish line. Make sure you pass the different points on time.
The same fee is charged for both distances. The start and finish of both routes are at the same point. There is a start in starting blocks.
Urban Walk Series
During the walking events of the Urban Walk Series, walkers can discover the most beautiful places in the Netherlands on foot. After all, Dutch cities have a lot to offer: from culture and architecture to entertainment and sports. After the walk, all participants receive a unique memento of the beautiful walk. In 2023, the Urban Walk Series consists of six cities.
The Urban Walk Series is a part of "We Are Walking". Walking is the most accessible sport in the world. It is the easiest way to exercise together with family and friends. Whether you prefer walking in the city, the hills or nature. We Are Walking offers something for everyone.
Charity - National MS Fund
This year, the National MS Fund is linked to the Urban Walk Series as a charity. Participants will contribute to creating a future without multiple sclerosis. You can help in 2 ways, namely by making a donation on the registration form or by going to walkforms.co.uk. Choose the city that appeals to you and create an action page to raise sponsorship money. If you raise more than €150, the National MS Fund will pay for your starting ticket!
Tip: Sign up as a group and combine conviviality with your commitment to a better life for people with MS. This makes walking even more fun!
