About the event

HRH The Crown Prince of Denmark will celebrate his 50th Birthday with Royal Run

HRH The Crown Prince turns 50 on May 26th 2018. The birthday will be marked with a weeklong celebration starting on May 21st with Royal Run, a big running event taking place in Denmark’s five largest cities: Aalborg, Aarhus, Esbjerg, Odense and Copenhagen.

Royal Run is an opportunity for Danes, foreigners living in Denmark or visiting Denmark to take part in the celebration of The Crown Prince who is also an active sportsman. It is his wish to celebrate his birthday with a running event that hopefully will encourage many to be physically active on this day and in general.

Participants can choose between two distances in all five cities - one mile or 10 kilometers. The Crown Prince will start the day in Aalborg with a one mile run, then continue to Aarhus, Esbjerg, and Odense, where he also will run a one mile. He will finish with a 10K run in Copenhagen.

The event is organized so that everyone can participate. Athletes or ambitious runners can compete in one of the two distances. Children, families, elderly and those with a handicap can also compete. They can even choose to walk one of the two distances.

Royal Run is a unique way to celebrate The Crown Prince. He is protector of “Move for Life”, which is a shared vision by The National Olympic Committee and Sports Confederation of Denmark and DGI with the goal to make Denmark the most active nation in the world. A vision, which is supported by Nordea-Fonden and TrygFonden. 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, which everyone can participate in.
