Aalborg’s arguably most stunning run is back.

This year, there’s a new route for the DAC Architecture Run Aalborg, so lace up your running shoes and explore the city’s beautiful architecture.

The run takes place on Sunday, September 3rd at 11:00.

You’ll experience the city in an entirely new way. You can choose between two routes of 5 and 10 km, both of which pass through selected streets, roads, passages, and past special buildings.

Run through a monastery, music house, and library

But the unconventional route also takes you in and out of buildings.

You’ll run through the Utzon Center, Musikkens Hus, Nordkraft, the Library, Aalborg Kloster, and the City Archive.

If you’ve participated in the run before, you can look forward to it. This year features new routes, and several buildings haven’t been part of the run previously.
