Dutch soldier first to finish "Walk of the World"

Sports Nijmegen, Netherlands - 20 July 2012

Dutch soldier Ingmar Bergman was the first person to finish the 96th "Walk of the World," on July 20, 2012 in Nijmegen, Netherlands. 

The "Walk of the World" is an annual event, that was originally designed for members of the military. Today, the "Walk of the World" is primarily made up of civilians, although servicemen and women still participate. The event began on July 17, 2012 and ended July 20, 2012. Participants in the march typically walk 30 to 50 km a day, depending on the category they are signed up for. An estimated 44 000 people participated this year. 

According to the event's official website, over 700 volunteers helped with the march. Festivities are taking place in each of the marching locations. 

The march included Elst, Wijchen, Groesbeek and Cujik.

" Long before most people walking into Nijmegen Dutch soldier Ingmar Bergman arrived at 10 am this morning at the finish."
