The “10” Club
A holder of the Gold Cross is someone who has completed the Nijmegen Four Days Marches 10 times or more. The name was derived from the medal. Upon completion of the Marches for the first time, one receives the so-called Four Days Marches Cross (‘Kruisje’). Upon the 10th completion, the medal is called Gold Cross.
The Association was founded on July 24, 1951. After receiving the Gold Cross, you will automatically receive an invitation to join the Association of Holders of the Gold Cross. Even if you initially do not join you may periodically receive later invitations to join. The Association currently has around 2,500 members
As you can see The official Nijmegen organisers have their own exclusive club for members once they have completed the Vierdaagse 10 times or more. We don’t have a separate club but we do have a list of all our members who have earned their Gold Cross.
