Frequently Asked Questions

Shirt exchange
If the item you ordered does not fit, you can exchange it. Return the shirt in its original packaging to the Venloop office at Koninginnesingel 14, 5911 KB Venlo. For completeness, please add a bill to the envelope with your name and address information and, of course, your desired size. We will then send this size (if in stock) back to you. In addition, it is also possible to come and exchange the shirt at the office. We are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am – 5:30 pm.

How can I report my cancellation? 
You can cancel by sending an email to In case of a cancellation that is known to us no later than 3 months before the start of the event in question, the paid registration fee minus € 5 administration costs will be refunded. Cancellations after this time will not refund the registration fee paid in accordance with our terms and conditions. If this is the case, you may be better off finding someone yourself who wants to take over your starting ticket .

I want to make changes regarding my enrollment.
In your registration confirmation you will find a link to the “self-change form.” This form allows you to make changes to your enrollment. Think of a change of address, a new e-mail address, etc. Please note: you can change your details until the pre-registration closes.

Can I transfer my starter pack to another hiker?
You can transfer your starting number to another participant via a form that will be online at the beginning of March. In accordance with our terms and conditions, this is also the only permitted way to transfer your starting number. The original participant’s name will be printed on the start number, however, the new participant will appear under his/her own name in the results list. Please note: the new name will not be shown when ‘registration check‘ . It is important to note that you can only transfer the start number once and it is not possible to change the distance.

The new participant must complete the transfer form. In doing so, you do need some information from the current participant, namely the start number, zip code and date of birth. Under no circumstances does the organization pass on participant data or mediate between participants with respect to transfer. €3,-  will be charged for the transfer by means of a one-time direct debit. Upon completion of the transfer process, you will receive a transfer confirmation email. Finally, participants should make sure among themselves that the start number reaches the correct (new) participant, as it is not possible to pass on a change of address for this purpose. Venloop Foundation does not intervene in the transfer of a start number. Participants are responsible for the proper registration and transfer of the physical race number.
