On the streets of Copenhagen on Paddy’s Day, live from the 3-Legged Charity Race

CPH POST hit the streets today to meet the competitors taking part in the famous St Patrick’s Day 3-Legged Race.

Irish sisters Rachel and Priscilla Quinn were participating in the race for the first time, but confident of winning! Priscilla came from Ireland to visit her sister in Copenhagen and convinced her to join the fun

Friends Kijoli (below), Pelle, Emil and Milas (all above) started their big day with a whiskey at 9 am. They’ve been using this method for the last few races. It’s not a strategy that’s delivered any silverware, but it’s a fun one!

Last but not least Joe, Peter, Rasmus and Alex, all well-dressed in green of course!
