The BDWF itself was formed in 2004, however the walking group has been together since 1988. Our focus is to take part in the Nijmegen Vierdaagse, an International four day march of 80, 100 or 128 miles (depending on age), in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. We are always encouraging new members to take up the challenge, and having done so most find it addictive. Hopefully you have found your way to our site because of your love of long distance walking or because you have heard of the event and would like to find out more about it.
All of our recent news can be found below. By searching through the site you will be able to answer any questions you have about us, if you can’t find an answer or you would like to join us next July then get in touch.
Because of the heat we had more drop outs then other years.

Today the two coaches travel back to the UK, some of our members left last night and some will make their own way home today.
This is our last meal, then we have awards and presentations.Who will get the Silk Shorts this year? Who went the extra mile?
Thank you to all the support staff, crew, drivers and first aiders.
Well done to everyone and hope to see you all next year!
Almost all of the walkers are back at the sports hall. Those that aren’t are probably still in town soaking up the atmosphere.
Overall it has been a good week, most people are relaxing and celebrating. The party begins now!
The weather is better now; no rain but getting hot again.
Most of our walkers have been through.
We have been busier with blisters today because of the wet and because it is the last day.
The Pontoon Bridge is in place, everyone here is getting ready for the walkers.
The weather is very different today, thunder and lightning, but the rain hasn’t reached us yet. Scratch that! It is BUCKETING down!

The tent is zipped up and the support staff are sheltering in the van.
All the walkers are up now, the last coach into town will be 0630.
Peace at last for the night staff!
The first of the 55km walkers are just being woken. They should miss some of the heat of the day by starting early. Pete will be ready soon with the coach to ferry them to the Wedren to start the final day. Veel Succes! to everyone.
