2,100 AU employees participated in the DHL Relay Fun Run in 2023. In 2024 Aarhus University once again invites all AU employees to join their colleagues for a run or walk in Aarhus, Odense or Copenhagen. 

The deadline for registering teams was May 16, 2024. Information about where and when to pick up the DHL bags with T-shirts and starting numbers will be sent by email to the team captain in the beginning of August.

New participants can order AU's official running T-shirt

AU's official running T-shirt is reused from year to year. It is therefore only those participants who do not already have an AU running T-shirt who must order one. The team captain orders running T-shirts in connection with registration.

About the DHL Relay Fun Run

With more than 200,000 participants in several cities in Denmark, the DHL Relay Fun Run 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.
