MTD signs renewed 5-year partnership with Stichting DE 4DAAGSE
Today MTD’s Business Development Manager, Anke Corsten, signed a renewed 5-year partnership with ‘Stichting DE 4DAAGSE’ for the Vierdaagse, the 4Days Marches, an international Four Day Distance Marches in Nijmegen, the Netherlands.
This four-day walking event, first held in 1909, is the world’s largest multi-day walking achievement event. The event is often referred to as ‘The Walk of the World’. Every year during the third week of July, more than 45,000 participants from 80 different countries and ages 11 to 90+ participate. In addition to civilians, more than 7,000 international military staff wearing their official uniform, and carrying a minimum of 10kg of weight in their backpacks, also participate. All participants walk 30km, 40km or 50km daily, depending on their age and gender. On completion, they receive a royally approved medal (Vierdaagsekruis).
MTD has provided all water connections for the facilities at the start and finish location at the Wedren in Nijmegen since 2000. Moreover, MTD connects all toilet facilities and water tap points along the route, which must be assembled and dismantled daily during the four-day event.
We thank Stichting de 4Daagse for their trust and look forward to a successful partnership in the coming years.
