Egmond Wandel Marathon is cancelled

Sports organisation Le Champion has decided not to organise any physical events till the 1st of March 2021. With the knowledge of today it is unclear if the guidelines of the government offer any space to organise large events in the coming months. Considering the long preparation time needed and the many uncertain factors now, together with parties involved, is decided to cancel the events. With that Le Champion wants to show responsibility. 
‘’An extremely difficult decision’’, stated by general manager of Le Champion, Ron van der Jagt. ’’But also a well-considered decision. The health of people is our highest goal. We want nothing more than inspiring as many people, young and old, to sport and exercise. But we also feel a huge responsibility for the safety and health of your participants, spectators and employees’’. Now that the physical events will not take place until the 1st of March, Le Champion will put even more energy into offering creative, virtual alternatives for cyclists, runners and walkers.
For many walkers, the Egmond Wandel Marathon is the sportive start of the year. The wheater conditions are never the same: it can snow and be cold, but also spring-like with a lovely sun. But one thing is always the same: the beautiful course along the North Sea beach and through the North Holland Dune Reserve. If you opt for the North Route (10.5 and 21.1 km), you will walk to Bergen aan Zee. If you prefer to walk towards Castricum aan Zee (10.5 and 21.1 km), then choose the South Route. Explore both routes? Then make use of the weekend registration and walk with us for two days.
