in partnership with DGI

Run through buildings and alleys, on pathways and stairways, in gardens and parks, hidden buildings and grand museums – and get special access to buildings that are normally closed to the public.

DAC Architecture Run is a race like no other.
It is a unique running experience through Copenhagen’s buildings and alleys, on pathways and stairways, in gardens and parks, historical buildings and magnificent museums – without timekeeping. Instead, the focus is on the fantastic surroundings you pass along the way. Surroundings that are equally inspiring, whether you run 5, 10 or 15 kilometers per hour.
The race kicks off at Lille Langebro, where you and the rest of the pack will head out on a 5K or 10K course specially planned by DAC and Danish sports association DGI. This year, DAC Architecture Run is part of Kulturhavn Festival, and therefore you will be met by morning jazz on the wooden pier at Danish Architecture Center and finish your walk/run with coffee and a light breakfast at Bryghuspladsen.
- Choose between three race options: 5K walk, 5K run and 10K run that follow two different courses – without timekeeping
- The race kicks off at Lille Langebro
- You can choose to get a race shirt with your participation, or opt out if your drawers at home are already full of old race shirts.
- Shortly before race day, we will send an email with practical information on how to pick up your race number and race shirt.
Remember, there is no timekeeping, so you and the other participants can take your time inside the buildings and make the most of your race experience. We look forward to a fun race through Copenhagen.

A different kind of race
Join us at the starting line for a one-of-a-kind race experience. With DAC Architecture Run, you will venture out on a specially planned race course that takes you inside some of the city’s architectural gems – places you wouldn’t normally find sweaty runners in tight spandex. The event is for anyone looking to experience the city’s architecture in a whole new way – and at a pace that suits them.
