The Board of the Police Sports Association 'Renkum', organiser of the Airborne March has, in close coordination and co-operation with the mayor of Renkum, decided not to execute the 74th International Airborne March on 04 September 2021.
Due to current Covid 19 circumstances and an uncertain future prospect till at least September, we unfortunately and with great pain had no other option than to cancel the 2021 edition. It is for us impossible to organise an Airborne March on a safe and responsible way with more than 30.000 walkers and approx. 20.000 visitors.
We hope you support and respect our inevitable decision. We also care about the hundreds of volunteers and co-operators and find it almost impossible to guarantee safe working conditions for them on the routes and on the Hartenstein sports park.
It has been a sad and emotional process and a tough decision to disappoint all of you for the second time in two years.
In the near future we will discuss how we can facilitate a 74th Airborne March. Not with full logistical support, but more on a small personal scale. Please check our website or social-media-channels for further information.
Nevertheless with enthusiasm we’re looking ahead to the 75th Airborne March edition on 03 September 2022. A remembrance of the sacrifices of thousands of mostly young Allied soldiers and civilians in 1944. It is their legacy we show our respect to, since 1947 and in many years to come.
See you in September 2022
The Board of the Police Sports Association 'Renkum'
