Fortunately, we were able to enjoy the four nights’walk with reasonably dry weather! Congratulations to all with the nice medals.
A number of children at the infant groups seem to have been infected with a virus similar to chicken pox, which is just as contagious as chicken pox. Children become feverish and have blisters at their hands, feet and in the face. That is why we reported it to the local health authority (GGD). Since it is contagious the advice is to keep children at home as long as they have blisters.

We would appreciate it when you would like to help out, for instance by standing along the route making sure the children get to focus on running. Please make sure that on that day no cars are being parked in the Burgemeester van der Werfstraat or the Jan van Houtstraat.
