General Details concerning the Verzorgingsmedaille are dealt with on a separate page:
The silver and gold medals are awarded by the KNBLO to those who have given exceptional service to the Vierdaagse, normally over many years.
Each medal is only awarded once and there is no provision to make further awards.
Fewer than ten gold medals have been awarded to date. These include one in 1999 to Mrs Roos Bos, the wife of the retiring March Leader Chris Bos for ‘support of her husband over a long period’.
While the silver medal is more common, fewer than 100 have been awarded to date.
Both the gold and silver medals follow the size and exact design of the bronze medal, the only difference being the metal. They are of yellow and white metal respectively, and contain no actual gold or silver.
