HRH Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark Kicks off the One Mile Campus Pre-Royal Run in Bornholm.

On the morning of Monday, May 16, 2022, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark made a surprise visit to Campus Bornholm in Bornholm, Denmark. The purpose of the visit was to cheer on hundreds of students who are participating in the One Mile Campus pre-Royal Run.

“Exercise provides oxygen to body and brain, so you remember the exam material better and are clearer…” that’s the purpose and overall message from the One Mile Campus pre-Royal Run.

According to the Danish television network, TV2 Bornholm, today’s fun run also:

“…marked the start of the holidays for the students. [The One Mile Campus run hopes to] strengthen the students’ desire for physical activity and promote the community around exercise among the young people on Campus Bornholm. It is the ambition that the students will discover the benefits of putting digital devices aside and go offline for the benefit of physical activity during their holiday. 

The One Mile Campus route is on trails and bike paths around the entire Campus, and students are sent off in groups, where they are invited to run or walk as many laps (one miles) as possible – without time calculation – until the event ends at 3:45 P.M. 

The 2022 Royal Run will take place on June 6 in the cities of Aalborg, Aarhus, Kolding, Næstved, København/Frederiksberg and Bornholm.

HRH Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark Cycles Through the Streets of Copenhagen.

On the wee morning hours of April 20, 2022, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark accompanied by representatives from the Royal Run cycled through the streets of lovely Copenhagen. The purpose of this morning’s ride was to make sure the “… one-mile route in the capital will measure exactly 1,609 km [for the upcoming Royal Run]…” according to the Danish royal court.

Led by route surveyor, Mr. Peer Jensen, the trip began at Amalienborg Slot to the Nyhavnsbroen bridge, and continued to cycle the Royal Run route with several stops along the way to place distance markers. The Danish royal court noted that “…the Crown Prince received an explanation on how to ensure that the survey is carried out as correctly as possible.”

If you’re unfamiliar with the Royal Run, it’s a family-friendly fun event for Danes, foreigners living in Denmark, or those visiting Denmark to participate in a mile-long run or walk whichever you choose. The event is open to all “…children, young people, adults and the elderly can take part even those who are in a wheelchair, pushchairs, and prams are welcome…” according to the official website for the Royal Run. The event is open to competitive Ironman level athletes and the casual runner, jogger, etc. Moreover, there is no time limit. You can run and/or walk at your own pace.
