Royal run '19

About the event

HRH The Crown Prince of Denmark will once again meet the Danes at Royal Run.

HRH Crown Prince Frederik celebrated his 50th birthday in May 2018 running with 70.500 Danes in the largest five cities in Denmark. Based on the great evaluation from both participants and the Crown Prince, Royal Run returned in June 2019 where 82.000 people registered for the event. See images and videos from 2018 and 2019.

Because of COVID-19 Royal Run 2020 was cancelled and we now look forward to Royal Run 2021, which will be held on 12 September in Denmark. Date for the Royal Run 2021 in Greenland will follow. 

Royal Run is an opportunity for Danes, foreigners living in Denmark or visiting Denmark to take part in this unique event. The main focus is to hopefully encourage people to be physically active on this day and in general.

The event is organized so that everyone can participate. Athletes or ambitious runners can compete and chase personal records. The rest of us can join the festive event in our own pace – and it is possible for whole families, elderly and those with a handicap to participate and enjoy the festive celebration in the streets.

The Crown Prince is protector of the organization behind the event, “Move for Life”. The Crown Prince is also a member of The International Olympic Committee (IOC). With this event he combines popular sports and his work with professional sports. He shows that he wishes not only to work through the IOC in meeting rooms but he wants to engage directly with the Danes in an event open to everyone.

Behind the event

Royal Run is organised by The National Olympic Committee & Sports Confederation of Denmark, DGI and the Danish Athletic Federation as part of “Move for Life”, which is the shared vision to make Denmark the most active nation in the world. A vision which is supported by Nordea-Fonden and TrygFonden. Novo Nordisk Fonden is strategic partner and TV 2 is media partner.
