Two people from Elsten, Yves Van Durme and daughter Eline, started this evening in the Dodentocht. Both are members of the Brakel walking club De Randstappers.
The Dodentocht is a walking tour organized in and around the Belgian municipality of Bornem that starts annually on the second Friday of August. The aim of the Dodentocht is to complete a course of 100 kilometers through Klein-Brabant within 24 hours.
Due to the tropical temperatures, the edition was shortened to 65 km. Many hikers are disappointed because the distance has been shortened. Yves and Eline have been training for months. That evening they chose to walk an extra 25 km.
Here are some atmospheric images. We wish the participants good luck!
