Slachtemarathon 2016

De Slachtemarathon 2016 was the 5th Slachtemarathon and therefore the village chose ‘Party’ as theme. It was a hot summer day, that 4th June 2016. A lot of residents made sure the participants had enough water to drink. And a party it was, in many different ways. 

A lot of photos en short film clips were made. A selection:
