No longer is the second day the day that most people give up. Only 857 didn’t reach the finish on day two and that’s a meager 2%. Much less than the usual 4%.

The fact that most people give up on the second day is no longer valid. The first time this didn’t happen was two years ago. The warm weather of this year was expected to bring back the tough image of the second day but the new trend is set.

The participants in the 97th edition of the Vierdaagse will face this year, in addition to the considerable distances they have to walk, another obstacle. During the coming days the temperature is probably going to be  26 or 27 degrees.

Participants of the Vierdaagse, which will start on Tuesday July 16, are advised to drink extra. Sun burn is also very likely so a good sun protection is  advised. Because during the night the temperature can drop to 15 degrees, late night partiers are advised to bring a sweater.
