Chair Race 

Eight teams of three race down the hill from outside Frederiksberg Zoo at full-pelt on office chairs – sounds like a wheely good idea that will be as equally exciting for spectators. 
The event is the brainchild of office equipment firm Office2go, and was rolled out in 2012. 

There are sure (hopefully!) to be plenty of thrills and spills along the way. 

This year the event will warm up with some serious racing from Denmark’s finest longboarders, before the real office swivel chair action gets under way.
