Royal Run 2019

10 June

Royal Run was invented on occasion of Crown Prince Frederik's 50th birthday last year. It was a huge success. Thousands of Danes participated running in five different cities across the country. This year the Danes were one more time invited to run in Copenhagen, Aalborg, Aarhus and Rønne (on Bornholm). More than 80,000 participated. It was all broadcasted live on Danish televison.

At the first event in 2018 Crown Princess had some problems with his back. Nevertheless, he participated a 10 km. run in Copenhagen. This year he was also troubled with his back due to a herniated disc. For that reason he was not able to participated. Instead he arrived to Aarhus with Dannebrog. Here the Crown Prince walked the famous One Mile. Later, he took his bike and followed the race in Copenhagen.

Crown Princess Mary arrived to Aarhus along with her husband in the morning. She then drove to Aalborg where she participated the 5 km race. She made it in about 26 minutes. The Crown Princess later participated in another race with the Christmas Seal Foundation and project Lykkeliga. It was a wonderful sight. She ran back several times support and motive the participating children to complete the race.

In the afternoon both Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary were headed back to Copenhagen. The Crown Prince arrived first. In Copenhagen the four royal children also participated in the family race. A proud father welcomed his children at the finish line right next to Amalienborg Castle. On several occasions the Crown Prince couple were seen along with their children, cheering for all the participants in Copenhagen. It was clear that all of them really enjoyed the day.

During the day, the Crown Prince family shared some moments on Instagram. First a photo of the Crown Prince Couple on board Dannebrog, here. Then Crown Princess Mary shared her excitement on her way to Aalborg, here. Prince Christian later posted a photo of himself and his sibiling's ready to participate the family race in Copenhagen, here. A proud father also shared a few moments with his children, here, here. Later Crown Prince Frederik posted a few photos from his bikeride, here. After a long day it was time to say thank you for another Royal Run, here.

Of course, Mary was dressed in a sporty outfit. She participated two races on occasion of Royal Run 2019. The white t-shirt and navy blue jacket are both pieces made for all the participants to wear. So did Mary and the rest of her family. The blue running tights has been seen before and a visible logo shows that they are from Nike. When Mary participated the 5 km race in Aalborg she also wore a light grey Under Armour cap. Seems like that is her style, because when seeing her out for a run she is typically wearing a cap. The same did Princess Josephine as the only one of her sibling's. Maybe she inherited her mothers love for caps while running? It even matched in color.

I also spotted that Mary wore a few jewellery. A golden necklace featuring green beads from Nadia Shelbaya and two golden bracelets from Cartier and Dulong Fine Jewelry. I wonder how that is at all comfortable. We also got see her in two different pairs of sneakers. One pair from Asics and another pair from Nike. Both seen before.
