1,910 AU employees participated in the 2019 DHL Relay Race

The 2019 DHL Relay Race is now over. A total of 1,910 AU employees had signed up to run or walk a route of five kilometres in Aarhus, Odense or Copenhagen.

Once again, Aarhus University was well represented at Denmark’s biggest fitness run – the DHL Relay Race. 370 teams participated in Aarhus, while AU employees in Odense and Copenhagen formed six teams in each city.

In keeping with tradition, Mindeparken provided a beautiful green setting for the relay race in Aarhus, and the 1,850 AU employees who participated could enjoy nice weather for exercising and lots of time for having fun with their colleagues.
