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 502,000 DKK and our goal in 2020 is to break all previous fundraising records! 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.

Mobile MobilePay

Everyone hates queuing right? Especially on a cold or snowy St. Patrick’s Day in Copenhagen. Why not register with Mobile MobilePay? Our 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:

Start Location (Axeltorv)

Warm-up party at The Tent

This year we’ll be starting the Race from The Tent which will be located on Axeltorv, just across from Tivoli.

We’ll be selling pint of Guinness and Carlsberg as well as soft drinks. We’ll have stalls for merchandise and face-painting and our race volunteers will be on hand to get you kitted out for the Race.

Remember folks, thanks to our fantastic sponsors Guinness, every kroner you spend in The Tent- on drinks, merchandise or face-painting- will go directly to our charities so if you’re buying a new hat make sure you buy it from us 🙂

We accept cash or mobile pay. Sorry no Dankort.

Leg Ties 

There’ll be a area sectioned off in the tent and when it’s time to start, we’ll ask racers to queue up, 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 Time-sheet with your Team Number and Starting Group.

The Starting Group corresponds to a start time which we will track separately. We’ll also write your Team Number on your armband in case you loose your Time-sheet and forget your team number (it happens!)
You’ve a total of 1.5 hours to complete the Race from the Starting Time.

There’s space on the Time-sheet for your Team Name, racers names and of course your Finish Time. Race volunteers will enter you Finish Time in our new Timing System when you get to The Dubliner. And, 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 Time-sheet is a map of the route and space for the stamps you’ll receive at each of the 5 pubs on route.

You can also follow the route using google maps:

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.

Finish Line

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. You have 1½ hours from your start time in which to complete the Race.

Prize Giving will take place at the Dubliner at 17:30.


And that’s it folks. We hope you enjoy the 3 Legged Charity Race as much as we enjoy arranging it ?

Have fun out there, look after each-other and don’t forget to upload and share your photos on Facebook. And if you’re on Instagram remember to tag us (#3LRCPH #PADDYSDAYDK)
