Psychiatry Run Risskov - exercise for everyone

Aarhus University Hospital, Risskov once again invites you to the annual Psychiatry Run Risskov - exercise for everyone. The run will draw attention to psychiatry in relation to exercise and health, and everyone is welcome to participate.

Last year, more than 300 psychiatry users, relatives, staff and others took part in the run, which is held by Department M at Aarhus University Hospital, Risskov. This year the run will take place on Thursday, 12 June, 2014 at 11 am and everyone can take part.

The aim of the run is to provide the general public with other associations to psychiatry in the form of exercise, health, happiness and solidarity. The organisers hope this will happen by e.g. generating some good stories that showcase openness and support in relation to mental illness.

The run is organised in cooperation with SIND (The Danish Association for Mental Health), the nationwide campaign ONE OF US, as well as the municipal exercise project ‘Sport on Track’ (Idræt på banen in Danish).

The run starts and ends in the park at Aarhus University Hospital, Risskov.

Find more information about the race and registration on the Danish website or in the Danish flyer (PDF). Deadline for registration for the run is 1 June, 2014.
