The Liberation Trail is a multistage ultra running event. From the D-day beaches in Normandy, France in a prologue + 6 stages, via Bastogne in the Belgium Ardennes to Arnhem in the Netherlands. Following the original route of the liberators on the beaches, paths and through the forests where there was severe fighting during World War II.

Also a tribute to the men, boys who fought for our freedom in 1944 and 1945. ‘Lest we forget’ where our freedom comes from. And to prevent this memory from disappearing after the last veterans die.

The Liberation Trail is no race. We take the time at the start, during and after the finish of each stage to remember the where our freedom comes from.  Lest we forget.
Everything is allowed. Running, walking/hiking. Whole distance and half distance. A day back to half distance, skipping a day. Even dogs are allowed. And also participating in relay is possible.

We also provide you with some memorial attributes like a poppy and/or memorial ribbon which you can put down at a memorial site.
