Registration for the 2023 DHL Relay Race now open

Aarhus University will once again participate in the DHL Relay Race, and the registration is now open for all employees. It’s time to dust off your trainers and mark your calendar for a cosy evening with your colleagues.

Many runners from Aarhus University stand ready to run among a large group of other runners at the DHL Relay Race.

Following a successful DHL Relay Race in 2022 with more than 1900 participants, Aarhus University once again invites all AU employees to join their colleagues for a run or walk in Aarhus, Odense or Copenhagen. 

DHL Relay Races in 2023:

The deadline for registration is 19 May 2023.  

Walk or run five kilometres

Whether you want to sprint, jog, walk, talk or attempt to set a record is completely up to you. The four different categories ensure that anyone can participate. You must form a team of five participants in order to register. Register a team of five for one of the following categories:

  • Relay race – women
  • Relay race – men
  • Relay race – mix
  • Walk

All routes are five kilometres. In the relay race categories, one team member will run at a time. In the walk category, the entire team walks the route together. Afterwards, there will be food and drinks, great company and cosy social interaction with colleagues, when all teams meet for an outdoor staff party in beautiful surroundings.  

New participants will receive running T-shirts

Employees should reuse the same AU official running T-shirt from year to year. New participants, who do not already have an AU T-shirt, can order one through the team captain in connection with registration. If you have lost or worn out your T-shirt, it is also through your team captain you can order a new one. Be aware that there is a limited number of T-shirts.
