Training together is just as much fun as alone

Quite a few steps have to be taken prior to the pilgrimage from Amsterdam to 's-Hertogenbosch to be able to walk the more than 155 km in six days. To be able to complete all six days of the hike with a smile on our face and without blisters on our feet, it is wise to train. That is why I have decided to walk a short distance (5-10 km) from my own front door until the week before the start in Amsterdam, and a long walk (20-25 km) every other weekend. In March next year I want to build this by doing a 25 km walk every weekend and a long weekend with three long walks, so that I am well prepared for the six-day pilgrimage.

Het Kloosterpad

Part of my training will be the Kloosterpad. The Kloosterpad is a walking path of 330 kilometers along some fifty (former) monasteries and abbeys in central and eastern Brabant. The Kloosterpad is divided into 15 stages, varying from 16.5 to 28 kilometers. The tour can be walked in fifteen stages, from monastery to monastery. I think it would be great fun to walk this one with you. Of course everyone is welcome, so participants and doubters can all come with me. So don't wait any longer and let me know via this form which stage(s) you want to walk along with and enjoy this route and the anticipation of the pilgrimage with me.
