Aarhus University invites all staff members to participate in the DHL Relay Race in Aarhus, Odense and Copenhagen. Registration is open until 4 May 2016.

Register for the DHL Relay Race

If you would like to participate in the DHL Relay Race as a member of one of AU’s teams, you need to sign up using the AU registration form. All teams need to be signed up by 4 May 2016.   

Details about the DHL Relay Race

Only teams can register. Each team must have five members and belong to one of the following categories:

  • Team of runners - men
  • Team of runners - women
  • Team of runners - women and men (coed)
  • Team of walkers

The distance is 5 km for all categories. This will be a relay race between the teams of runners, where the five team members take turns to run the 5 km. The teams of walkers will walk the 5 km together.

All participants will receive running T-shirts

In 2015, it was decided to use AU’s official running T-shirts again from one year to the next. This means that only new members of AU staff will receive a running T-shirt. The design is classic and timeless, so the T-shirt can be used in the coming years.

Due to a production error, the print on the 2015 running T-shirts was wrong, therefore the supplier has delivered a new batch of T-shirts free of charge. This year all members of staff, who participate in the DHL Relay Race, will therefore get a new AU running T-shirt with the right print. See the size guide for men and the size guide for women before signing up.
