ABOUT THE RACE

Welcome to the official St. Patrick’s Day 3 Legged Charity Race website!

Started back in 2001, the 3 Legged Charity Race raises money for children’s charities while celebrating the Irish national holiday in Copenhagen, Denmark. Thanks to the continued support of our sponsors Guinness, the Race has raised over 502,000 DKK for a variety of children’s charities. The money has been used in many ways, from supporting the hospitals clowns in Danish hospitals to building a classroom for an English language program in Cambodia.

Some say the 3 Legged Charity Race makes Copenhagen one of the best places in Europe to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Some say it’s one of the best places in the world.
You’d have to agree that few whacky shenanigans can ever match the spectacle of the 3 legged racers running through Copenhagen on St. Patrick’s Day. It’s definitely something to do- apart from the obvious.

Check out this video from the Embassy of Ireland in Denmark who interviewed race organiser Siobhán Kelleher-Petersen about how the 3 Legged Charity Race started 😎
