The 8th edition of the European Week of Sport is planned for 23 to 30 September, followed by the Danmarks Motionsuge (Danish Week of Movement). Now is a great time to get inspired for this year’s events - by checking out the highlighted events of the #BeActive month that the Danes enjoyed a year ago. Let’s start with ‘Strandvejen’ – a running family event by the Danish seaside!

The ‘Strandvejen’ event, organised by the Gentofte Running Club and DGI Greater Copenhagen in support of the European Mile, invited families and physical activity enthusiasts alike to #BeActive and participate in a 5K or a one mile race, kickstarted with an energising dance led by the ISCA team.

More than half a million people took part in almost 8,000 European Week of Sport Denmark and Danmarks Motionsuge events aimed to get the Europeans on the move again – in their sports and fitness clubs, at school, at work, in outdoor spaces and at home.
