The trail is a 492 km long hike!

    Pieterpad as a Marathon in 4 days

    In September 2020, 30-year-old marathon runner Gerben Overmans walked out of the Pieterpad in one go. The average hiker needs about 26 days to walk the entire route. It took Overmans 'only' four days to run non-stop the 494 km long route from Groningen to the top of the Sint Pietersberg south of Maastricht. In addition to a record, the marathon runner also raised more than 25,000 euros for children in Tanzania.
