This year the event took place on the 4th of February with both starting and ending point at Kolga Mansion. The number of the participants was already 1600.

Again, the official opening was started with a reconstruction of a historic Battle of Paju.

This time the March was held on three routes with different distances – 30km, 17km and 8,5km. The routes went through the small village roads and hiking trails in Lahemaa National Park.

Again, many of the participants came to the March in historic wartime costumes and the prize for the best costume was handed out. Also, the selfie-contest was held with hundreds of photos taken.
