Dates and distances
The Multi-day Walking Event Venray (MWV) starts with a two-day walking event in 2018. It will be extended to three days from 2019. MWV will take place each year in the weekend of week 22:
- In 2018: Saturday 2 June and Sunday 3 June
- In 2019: Friday 31 May, Saturday 1 June and Sunday 2 June
- In 2020: Friday 5 June, Saturday 6 June and Sunday 7 June
- In 2021: Friday 4 June, Saturday 5 June and Sunday 6 June
Participants are free to decide how many days they want to walk and which distance on each of these days. That might be different each day. MWV offers routes with three standard distances: 10, 20 and 30 kilometres. Participants can chose one of these distances, but they may also make combinations, for instance 10 and 30 to walk a total of 40 kilometres. They can vary their combination each day or pick one of the (other) standard distances. Walkers have complete freedom of choice.
This flexibility makes the MWV the ideal practice event for the four-day marches in Apeldoorn or Nijmegen, or for one of the many Kennedy marches. But the MWV is also attractive to everyone who just wants to walk 10 or 20 kilometres at a leisurely pace. The MWV is for everyone who loves walking, for people of all ages, and for beginners as well as advanced and experienced walkers.
Start/Finish – location and times
The registration office is situated in the foyer of Theatre Venray at the Schouwburgplein in Venray. It is open from 7 a.m. It is possible to register here. But all walkers, including those who have already registered in advance, must visit the registration office to have their digital ticket scanned or to receive their entry confirmation. Then the walkers can go the start at the Schouwburgplein.
Walkers for 40, 50 and 60 kilometres start between 7 and 8.30 a.m. Walkers for 10, 20 and 30 kilometres start between 9 and 12 a.m.
After finishing, walkers sign off again at the registration office. They can collect a stamp in their booklet and they will receive a commemorative pin for completing the distance they registered for.
