Registration of Avond4daagse is now open!
That was the slight message that appeared in the school portal. This message attracted me since I am actually already familiar with the activity. However, we never join this event. And there was corona for two years, and we did not really pay attention to the extra activities outside school.
I thought maybe this would be an excellent chance to join. Without any doubt, I enrolled Runa for 5 km walking in Avond4Daagse, organized by the school in the Reitdiep neighborhood.
So, what is actually Avond4Daagse?
Evening4daagse is an initiative event of Koninklijke Wandelbond Nederland ([KWbN], a sports association in the Netherlands). The mission is to persuade the children as much as possible in walking activity. They move through the neighborhood during the evening time, for 4 days in a row. The idea is not only to promote a healthy lifestyle, but also to make them have an unforgettable ‘walking party’. And this event was passed from generation to generation. Almost every region or city in the Netherlands organizes this activity. Children from 4 years old and older can join, and also parents can participate (especially for small children). Older children can walk by themselves.
