How can opening a motorway help people #BeActive?


It is not often that the opening of a new motorway will help people to #BeActive...

But in Jutland on 29 September, the Holstebro motorway opening will do exactly that as part of the European Week of Sport 2018!

Partners DGI, DGI Vestjylland and Holstebro Kommune have come together organise a truly fantastic event to get thousands of people moving.

Vejfest i vest will ensure that the first people to use the motorway will not be in cars, vans or on motorbikes, they will be on foot and on bicycles!

Before the road is opened to cars there will be a big street party, and a 5km running race and 30km cycling race.

And if you cannot make it... well, there are hundreds more events taking part across Denmark over the week, with something for everyone! Just check out the events under the tab above.
