Mid-May events 1: You’ll pass this course with flying colours

The Colour Run

May 10; Valbyparken; 155kr, billetto.dk

Wearing a white t-shirt that definitely won’t remain that colour, you make your way through various colour zones over the course of a 5km run inspired by the Indian Holi festival.

Every time you run a kilometre, you pass with flying colours as a new colour is introduced through the medium of corn flour.

It’s aimed downwards, but sunglasses are advised if you want to keep it out of your eyes.

The colour might stick to your clothes and footwear if not brushed and washed off immediately.

At the very least it’s a good chance to familiarise yourself with the splendid and extensive Valbyparken.


May 9; Blågårdsgade, Cph N

Celebrate the best of Nørrebro with a street party on pedestrian street Blågårdsgade. Expect large crowds, live music and hygge as both Nørrebro’s very own and other Copenhageners gather to enjoy the party.
