Registration for the 2020 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. The registration deadline is 13 May.


NOTE: Due to coronavirus, the DHL Relay Race will not be held in Odense, Copenhagen and Aarhus on the announced dates. The DHL Relay Race organisers in the three cities are in the process of investigating whether it will be possible to hold the DHL Relay Race later this year.


A cosy summer evening with your colleagues. A brisk walk or run in beautiful surroundings. The 2020 DHL Relay Race is getting closer, and now is the time to register you and your team.

Walk or run five kilometres

Whether you want to sprint, jog, walk, talk or attempt to beat the 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 a cosy atmosphere, 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. Only new participants who do not already have an AU running T-shirt should order T-shirts for the race. T-shirts can be ordered by the team captain in connection with registration.
