Vierdaagse van de IJzer vzw

Four Days of the Yser


The 48th edition of the Four Days of the Yser will take place between 17 and 20 August, 2021. Due to the corona crisis and the measures taken, the organisation of such events is currently forbidden.

We will try our best to set up the walking activities, possibly in an adapted form, as soon as permission is given. Additional information will be released on Facebook, Instagram, in our newsletter and on this page as soon as available.

CEREMONIES

In addition to the physical challenge and the pleasant atmosphere among participants, the “Four Days of the Yser” wants to make time for remembrance and respect in memory of the many military and civilian casualties who fell in the area during World War I.

 

Along with various patriotic associations, we invite you to take part in these moments of reflection and we ask that you show appropriate respect during these commemorations.

 

The official opening ceremony will take place on the Monday evening preceding the event. The shrimp fishermen on horseback from Oostduinkerke, who created the Four Days of the Yser, will escort the prominent figures from the Zeedijk to the monument to the fallen at the Sint-Niklaas church in the Leopold-II laan.  

 

On the closing day in Ypres, the daily “Last Post Ceremony” under the Menenpoort in Ypres will exceptionally be advanced from 8 pm to 3 pm. After listening to the penetrating tones of the bugles, the Four Days of the Yser will officially be brought to a close with a parade of all participants from the city’s edge, through the Menenpoort to the main square.


An overview with the locations and times of the ceremonies will be included here as soon as it becomes available.
