Day two of Nijmegen's four-day walking event
Walkers started off on the second day of the Nijmegen International Four-Day Marches at four o'clock this morning.
Today's walk is known as Wijchen Day and takes the participants through the villages of Weurt, Beuningen and Wijchen.
A total of 39,933 walkers started the four-day event on Tuesday morning. It was a particularly warm day and by the evening 1,154 had given up.
Four people were hospitalised, but the organisers were still relieved since there were actually a few deaths four years ago when the weather was exceptionally hot.
