On Friday afternoon, 15.30h, the walk will start from Spankeren with a line walk of 30 kilometers to Klarenbeek. You will be transported by busses from the location in Klarenbeek (MFC) to Spankeren. The first 15 km will be unpaved and after that, you will arrive at a rest post. At this location, you can make free use of coffee, tea, healthy waters and the toilet. This is ofcourse also a moment to take a rest. The next 15 km will be paved and you will arrive back at the MFC in Klarenbeek. In the MFC, a warm meal will be available for you. At 22.00h, you will join the start of the Kennedymars 80 km walk participants. All consumptions underway are included in your registration fee. Important to know is that a walking pace of at least 6 kilometers per hour is expected for this first 30 kilometers.
Kennedymars - 80 km
The Kennedymars consists of four loops of 20 kilometers. You will walk the final 40 kilometers together with the participants of the daytime Round of Klarenbeek participants of the 10, 20 and 40 kilometers routes. At the starting location, a bag with personal belonings can be left behind.
The first two loops (at night) will be walked on paved roads. The last two loops (during the day) are mostly unpaved as that has been common in earlier walks.
For the most loops of 20 kilometers, after approximately 7 and 14 kilometers, there is a so called chariot rest. We will offer you easy food and drinks on these points. This is again included in the registration fee.
After 20 kilometers and 60 kilometers, you are able to consume food and drinks (on your own costs) in the catering of the MFC ('de Brug' or 'the Bridge') in Klarenbeek. After 40 kilometers, a complete breakfast will be offered to the participants that have walked during the night. This breakfast is again included in the registration fee.
You will walk unique routes and roads and you will be offered a great course.
Saturday afternoon, 18.00h, will be final time to finish for all walks/distances.
