About the DHL Relay Race

With more than 200,000 participants in several cities in Denmark, the DHL Relay Race is the world’s biggest fitness run. Participants can either participate in a 5 x 5 km relay race or a 5 km walk, and 95% of participants are teams from companies or associations.

DHL brings us together to share something other than our daily work. It’s a fun run together with a picnic in a festive atmosphere.
