This year we’re introducing some changes to help improve your overall Race experience, and we really hope you like them…
Starts 12:00 at Kennedy’s Irish Pub.
Please check out the Race Rules for all the ins and outs.
Participation in the race costs a minimum donation of 150DKK, per team (2 people). Donations can be made in cash or with MobilePay. It’s definitely easier for us if you pay by MobilePay, so if you can, please do.
If you’re paying cash please have the correct amount. Sorry no Dankort/credit cards.
To date the 3 Legged Charity Race has raised over 460,000 DKK. Our goal in 2019 is to reach over ½ million kroner in total donations. Every kroner makes a difference so please give what you can. And remember, thanks to our sponsors Guinness, all your donation is given uncut to our 3 charities.
Everyone hates queuing right? Especially on a cold or snowy St. Patrick’s Day in Copenhagen. That’s why this year, we’re introducing Mobile MobilePay where race volunteers come out on the streets and register you.
Race volunteers will be outside Kennedy’s walking down the queue. If you’re paying by Mobile Pay, you can do everything outside- sign the disclaimer, get your Race armband, and of course your free beer from Kennedy’s.
You will be asked to sign a disclaimer with the following text:
DISCLAIMER OF RESPONSIBILITY ST. PATRICK’S DAY 3 LEGGED CHARITY RACE
I acknowledge that the organizers of this event will not be held responsible for any injuries, accidents, or loss of property that may occur during and in connection with the 3 Legged Charity Race.

Once registered, you head to the Start location on Axeltorv where you will be tied to your partner.
Start Location (Axeltorv)
This year the Race will start from the other side of Axeltorv.
In 2012, the 12th year of the Race, we needed a bigger location and our Tent days began. So we setup camp on Axeltorv, close to The Shamrock Inn- the first pub on route. But due to building work, since then we’ve started from the other side of Axeltorv, outside the pink Palads cinema.
And now its 2019. The building work is finally done and we’re moving back to where those Tent days began.
And it’s a whole new setup across the road…..
Warm-up party at Axelborg Bodega
This year we’re delighted to welcome Axelborg Bodega as part of the Race. This little gem of a pub first opened its doors in 1918- it’s part of Copenhagen history! And from 12:00 to 16:00 on St. Patrick’s Day this traditional Danish bodega will get an Irish touch. They’ve been watching from afar all these years and now they’re joining in the fun…
We’ll setup shop in Axelborg Bodega and there’ll be areas for merchandise sales and face-painting. Race volunteers will be on hand to get you kitted out for the Race. Remember all profits from everything we sell on the day goes uncut to our charities so if you’re buying a new hat make sure you buy it from us 🙂
Plenty more exciting things planned for Axelborg Bodega. We’ll keep you updated on Facebook…
Leg Ties at Start Pavilion
There’ll be a long pavilion setup in the square outside Axelborg Bodega. We ask racers to queue inside the crowd control barriers in the Pavilion, and our expert leg tiers will gaffer you up and get you ready to start the Race.
After you’ve been leg tied, you’ll receive your Timesheet with your Team Number and Starting Time. We’ll also write your Team Number on your armband.
You’ve a total of 2 hours to complete the Race from the Starting Time.
There’s space on the Timesheet for your Team Name and of course your Finish Time. Race volunteers will fill in your Finish Time when you get to the Dubliner. You can fill in your Team Name when you finish the Race, or at your leisure on route….it’s entirely up to you! On the back of the Timesheet is a map of the route and space for the stamps you’ll receive at each of the 5 pubs on route.
And they’re off!
Racers will be set off in timed groups of 10 teams. We’ll play a snippet of Shipping Up To Boston by Dropkick Murphys as each group leaves. If you don’t know the song, check out this Go Pro video from Team Tutu’s Race back in 2017.
You’re asked to drink a ½ pint of beer in each pub on route. Check out the pubs on this year’s route here.
As always, the Finish Line for this year’s Race is at The Dubliner on Amagertorv, right in the middle of the walking street. Here race volunteers will register your finish time and untie your legs.
Prize Giving will take place at the Dubliner at 18:00 at the latest.
And that’s it folks. We hope you enjoy the 3 Legged Charity Race as much as we enjoy arranging it ?
