42,195 gruelling … centimetres
It is not time yet to sit comfortably in your armchair, under the blanket, with your cat on your lap! Check this week's events out!
You are never too young to run a marathon – at least when the route is measured in centimetres! Help your child run a distance of exactly 42,195 cm in Fælledparken this Thursday. All participants receive a diploma and a special race bag for crossing the finishing line. The mini-marathon is part of the Refleksløbet, a race event for highlighting the use of reflective clothing in the dark months to come.

Race to be visible
Run for safety! Join the after-dark 5 km race Refleksløbet and highlight the use of reflective clothing. All participants receive a goodie bag containing gloves and other reflective running gadgets, so they don’t have to be afraid of the dark while exercising during the many winter afternoons to come. You get a free reflective vest if you are one of the first 500 to register.

What’s it worth?
Are you curious about the value of the furniture classics filling up the space in your attic? They might even belong to your boss. Then bring it – or a photo of it – along to Arken, where the assessment experts from Bruun Rasmussen will give free evaluations on any works of modern art and design. It might be worth a fortune at an auction! Don’t tell your boss, though.
