Luggage

Do I need to carry my backpack for 100km?

Only luggage storage in the centre of Bornem

This year there will be no luggage service at the Halfweg post. Due to a shortage of volunteers, we cannot offer this service this year. You can however store your luggage in the centre of Bornem, in the sports hall of O.L.V.P Bornem.
This service is free of charge. Keep in mind that once your luggage has been handed in, it will not be available again until you are back in Bornem.

It is not allowed to put valuable objects or medication in your luggage. If you do, it will be at your own responsibility. Also liquids in your luggage are not allowed. In case of leakage of the packing, it can also make other luggage wet.

Finally, your luggage may not exceed 15 kg and you may bring a maximum of 1 piece of luggage. As organisation we are not responsible for damage and/or loss of your luggage.

Don't want to walk 100 km with your backpack?

Then you can have it brought to the post halfway in Opwijk. You can drop off your luggage, provided with a name and address label, at the Cultural Centre Ter Dilft from 15:00. Follow the signposts from the start. This service is free of charge. Please note that once your luggage has been handed in, it will no longer be available until the checkpoint in Opwijk.

But, what...

1.

If I quit before Opwijk?

If you quit before Opwijk, you are responsible for informing the responsible ‘Opgevers’. You can find these at the ‘Opgevers terug naar Bornem’ sign. Inform the person responsible of your participant’s and luggage number. Returning your luggage takes time. It will take a minimum of 4 hours between the registration and delivery of the luggage if you quit before Opwijk.

2.

Should I do at the checkpoint?

You can claim your luggage in Opwijk upon presentation of your badge. You can return your luggage at the ‘Retour bagage’ sign. Once you have returned your luggage, it will no longer be available until you return to Bornem. If you do not need your luggage in Opwijk, please let the employees know. They will return your luggage to Bornem. Your luggage will be available in Bornem after 13:00 if no other information is provided.

3.

Will I do once I have arrived?

You can only pick up your luggage when you arrive by presenting your badge. Luggage will only be provided to a non-hiker upon presentation of a valid badge with a badge number. The luggage booth will open at 04:00 on Saturday morning in the sports centre of the OLVP Middenschool, Temsesteenweg 10 in Bornem.

Each hiker with a badge must always check out for the rapid and correct return of luggage.
