ISCA coordinates European Week of Sport in Denmark for second year in a row: Event registration now open
ISCA has again been selected by the Danish Ministry of Culture and the EU to coordinate European Week of Sport activities in Denmark in 2017. The European Week of Sport (EWoS) in Denmark will coincide with the official dates of the European Week of Sport, 23-30 September 2017. It is now possible to register an event on the EWoS Denmark website.
Last year’s successful #BeActive campaign included the Copenhagen Half Marathon, a motorway fun run, activities for seniors and street soccer finals. This year will feature two flagship events, among many others across the country.
The first flagship event, #BeActive Day of Team Sports and Health, will be a series of pop-up “try-it” ball game activities on 23 September. It is being organised by the Copenhagen Centre for Team Sport and Health at the University of Copenhagen, along with partners DGI and the Sports Confederation of Denmark (DIF) in support for their Move for Life (Bevæg Dig for Livet) campaign.
The second flagship event is the second edition of the Marguerit Run on 24 September, organised by the Danish Athletics Federation and DGI together with the Danish media company and publisher of the daily newspaper Politiken.
Other events on this year’s Danish EWoS calendar include DGI’s Happy Moves street sport training sessions in seven Danish cities, spontaneous community physical activity events organised by the Ollerup Academy of Physical Education, #BeActive Walks organised by the Danish Ramblers’ Association, several GoRun weekend training sessions, Bike&Run events by the Danish Federation of Company Sports and local club events in Aarhus, the EU Capital of Culture.
