Join us and climb quickly aboard the steam train of the Veluwse Steam Train Company (VSM).

A very special Trail run through a very beautiful area!
We gather at the sports hall at Burgemeesterbloemerstraat 1 in Dieren, there you get your starting number. You then walk in 5 minutes to the station where the steam train is waiting for us.
You can park for free at the trainstation, Noorder Parallelweg 1, 6951 AA Dieren
Please note, to prevent nuisance, the road behind the start finish is closed and you have to park at the station.

Then you walk to the sports hall at Burgemeesterbloemerstraat 1 in Dieren.

This is approximately 400 meters from the station.
The route to the registration is outlined from the entrance to the parking lot. We also indicated the walking route from the sports hall to the platform of the Steam Train.
This is a 5-minute walk from the sports hall where you pick up your starting number.
There is no layout in the coupe, we just start filling the first wagon.
The steam train will leave at 10.00 * and it is wise to be on time, because otherwise it will be a lot of extra kilometers.
We have rented the steam train specifically for this activity, so there are only trail runners on board.
That promises to be fun.
The steam train runs on a single track from Dieren to Apeldoorn.
This through a beautiful environment.
The track is only ridden by the (steam) trains of the VSM Along the way he will stop twice.
During the ride you can get to know all good-humored trail runners who all carry their experiences and want to share this with you, right?
There are toilets on board the train, which you can only use while driving.

The routes;



Those who use Wiciloc, or navigate through a mobile phone, bring a power bank, you will experience that your mob phone is drained much faster if you use the GPS of your phone.
And then it becomes a real challenge!

First stop EERBEEK
Arrival at 10.30 a.m.

In Eerbeek, the participants alight for the 15K and 50k route.
This is a 30-minute drive Given the need, we have decided to provide arrows for the 15 k route.
Therefore, it will no longer be possible to work with precursors at these distances
The route starts on the platform after which we jointly walk along the tracks and dive into a villa neighborhood.
This is partly unpaved and only destined for traffic, so nice and quiet.
The Harderwijkerweg is crossed by traffic controllers, you must follow their instructions and do not cross independently.
From this moment you are also free to go
You will now follow the yellow arrows that indicate your route (15 k) 15 k approximately 120 height meters 200 D +
The route is very beautiful and varied.
The routes are placed on and Wiciloc



25 K en 35 K

Arrival at 11 a.m.
In Beekbergen the participants get out for the 25k and 35k Here you can also see all old Steam Trains that are being refurbished by the VSM (Veluwse Stroomtrein Maatschappij) and deployed on the track from Apeldoorn to Dieren.
By walking this trail you support the volunteers who spend their free time restoring these special steam locomotives, each with its own history.

We have compiled beautiful routes.
Very varied and challenging.
The routes go over the Posbank and also take the “Koningslaan”.
So many altimeters will have to be defied.
The trail starts at the station where we walk together on a quiet rural road to the edge of the forest at a leisurely pace.
This is approximately 1.5 km through a particularly beautiful area.
Traffic controllers ensure that we can cross safely and from that moment you can continue the route independently.
Keep a close eye on your navigation device, not all paths we use are clearly visible …

Along the way there are care posts for the 25k, 35k and 50k Make sure that you have enough moisture with you!
Remember that you have sufficient battery capacity for the GPS that you use (Watch, Phone, GPS)
The 35k route is only on GPX

The routes are posted on the App Wiciloc.
With this app you can navigate on your cell phone.
If you deviate from the route, it will emit a signal.
Mind you, it requires a lot from your phone battery so an extra power bank is recommended
