Did you know ...

That this is already the 55nd edition of the 100 km Dodentocht? 

The start zone opens at 6 pm. It is located in Breeven. The actual start is at 9 pm.

For safety reasons and the well-being of the animal, dogs (or other pets) are not allowed. 

100KM Dodentocht is not a race. Therefore, we work with opening and closing times of our checkpoints. If you want to walk this tour, you have to take the opening hours into account. If you walk too fast, you may have to wait at a checkpoint.

You can drop off your luggage at the gymnasium of O.L.V.P school. The luggage will stay there and will not be taken to the post half-way.
Please check on the website how this works.

There is a checkpoint every 5 to 7 kilometres. There will be drinks and/or something to eat at each checkpoint. We offer fruit, yoghurt, biscuits, bread rolls, coffee, tea, soup and sports drinks.

Participants who ordered a hot meal at registration will receive a warm buffet with

  • Tomato soup with or without meatballs
  • Pasta bolognese
  • Pasta veggie with seasonal greens
  • Lasagne with salmon

The checkpoints with first aid stations have been marked with a red cross (the logo of the Red Cross) on the route map. 

When you arrive, you will be scanned, receive a medal and a certificate, a small gift, and well-deserved congratulations. 

The Bornem train station is a stone’s throw from the church square (where you must pick up your checkpoint badge). The Accessibility page contains more information on how you can easily reach Bornem. 

Did you know ...

that 13,000 hikers will pick up the challenge of hiking the 100 km Dodentocht? 

You can only order a participants’ T-shirt during your online registration. This will not be possible afterwards. A T-shirt costs 10. 

The envelope you will pick up on one of the pick-up days or the day of the 100 km Dodentocht does not only contain your checkpoint badge. It serves as your proof of payment and must be presented when picking up your T-shirt. 

The tracking page will only be active from the start, when the badge is scanned for the first time! 

There are support vehicles available at the checkpoints to bring hikers back to Bornem. All checkpoints are equipped with signs needed to recognise these support vehicles. It is important to check out when you quit. 

All questions, proposals, complaints, and remarks can only be submitted in writing to VZW 100 km Dodentocht – Kadee, to the attention of The Board, Reedonk 17, 2880 Bornem. Legal procedures will always be handled by the District Court in Mechelen.
