This edition on 31 August en 1 September 2018 is in extra edition en therefore it is extra special. We do not walk the usual 1 day, but 2 days, we stay the night ánd follow a different route as usually. We walk through all the villages. De tickets sales starts for Freonen on 23 September 2017 at 6 am and for everyone else on 30 September 6 am.

We want to know a lot from you when you order the tickets. We will clarify those choices to make in the following texts.

Route

A regular Slachtemarathon leads us over the Slachtdyke. This special edition has a one time new route: we walk trough all the villages that are involved in the Slachtemarathon. That akes de route twice as long en we don’t do it in one day, but in two days. Because of the distance – about 91 km in 2 days – there is no Slachtemarathon for runners in 2018. Runners can run the Slachtemarathon in 2020 again.

Have a look at the route map. The starting point is in Raerd, the finish on day 2 in Oosterbierum.
