Egmond Wandel Marathon

For many walkers, the Egmond Wandel Marathon is the sportive start of the year. The Egmond Wandel Marathon takes place on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 January 2023.

The weather conditions are never the same in January: 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 dunes. 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.

10.5 or 21.1 km 

You can choose a distance of 10.5 or 21.1 km and whether you want to walk one or two days. If you choose two days for the 21.1 km, half marathon distance, you will complete the full Egmond Walking Marathon. If you choose the 10.5 km, quarter marathon on both days, you will walk a total of half a marathon. The course of both distances runs over the beach and through the Noordhollands Duinreservaat. Routes through a beautiful nature reserve that can also be a tough challenge due to the loose sand, changing weather conditions and rolling terrain.
