I want to register but my e-mail address is recognised. What should I do?
If your email address is recognised that means you have participated before! Try logging in with your personal profile. You can do that as follows:
How long have I got to register?
You can register up to two weeks before the event, if there are still places available. From April onwards, registrations is going very fast and the routes can be filled quickly.
How can I form a team?
There are various options when you register. You can join an existing team or create a new team. The person who forms a team is the team captain and automatically gets two pages to supervise; a team page and their own individual page. All sums raised on the individual pages (including other team members) are automatically calculated on the team page.
Is there a maximum size for a team?
You can walk with as many people as you like. You can continue adding to your team as long as the registration remains open.
I registered as an individual participant but now I want to join a team, is that possible?
Yes of course! Mail us the name you’re participating under and the team you want to join. Or if you want to start your own team, mail us the name you want to call your team.
I would like to walk a different distance and change it, is this possible?
As long as there are still places available on your desired route, this is possible up to two weeks before the event. You can change the distance yourself on your personal page until May 1. After May 1, we can change this for you if you send us a message.
How can I deregister?
You may find yourself in a situation that you need to pull out. You can cancel your registration by sending us a message. Unfortunately, we cannot refund your contributions.
Are children allowed to take part in the Night of the Refugee?
Everyone can take part in the Night of the Refugee. Note that on the 40-kilometer route we require participants aged 18 and under to be accompanied by at least one registered adult participant.
When do I get my e-ticket?
