If you have answers, please help by responding to the unanswered posts.
"When participants in the Royal Run 2020 cross the finish line, they will receive a redesigned medal around their neck.
The appearance of the medal has just been revealed, and here H.K.H. The Crown Prince it presented. In addition to being made of zinc, the medal has a cord woven from recycled plastic. The Royal Run will be launched on June 1 in Sønderborg and then continue in Aalborg and Odense as well as Copenhagen and Frederiksberg. In addition, Royal Run will again be held at Bornholm, though without royal participation. Four days before the launch goes to Royal Run 2020, H.K.H. Crown Prince of Greenland to kick off the Royal Run in the capital Nuuk."

Beautiful and sustainable design
Crown Prince Frederik has just presented the medal on the Royal's social media and it is made of zinc and seven centimeters in diameter.

Sustainability has also been envisaged in the medal, with the medal cord being woven from recycled plastic and smaller than in previous years to reduce the carbon
footprint.

Personale message from Frederik, Mary and children:

‘We have all in the family been looking forward to take on our running shoes for the Royal Run. However, due to the current situation with COVID-19/coronavirus, we unfortunately have to postpone this year's running party to September 6 in Denmark and August 30 in Greenland.

We would like to encourage all running people - young and old - to maintain the joy and enthusiasm for exercise, to follow the recommendations of the authorities and to have patience.

We all six hope that the Royal Run can become a major gathering after the summer holiday and that everyone will take care of themselves - and each other.“

And with a lovely new photo of the Crown Prince family:

What a wonderful message- we must all look out for over selves and each other. Patience is key during these times.
Im glad that it was postponed and not cancelled all together. Im sure there will be more than one who is ready to run and run after this crisis.

Nice family picture as well, it's been awhile since we seen them all together so it's nice. Can't complain about the Frederik solo picture either ;)
 
It is the general attitude of the Royal Family at this time.
Of course RIgshospitalet has special rooms for the Royal Family , France does not have. Therefore Prince Joachim decided to leave France for the hospitalisation of his Son Henrik. A shame for the French Doctors.
For Frederick and Mary I compared their attitude with my Royal Family.

Three things.

1) This was an information directed mainly at those who were to take part in Royal Run or attend the events. - There is no need to add a note to every message expressing sympathy for all the infected.

2) It has emerged today that Henrik has been undergoing treatment at Rigshospitalet for years. So it is IMO only natural that they choose to bring their son back to DK where he knows the doctors, nurses and surroundings and even though Henrik is probably good at French by now, explaining your medical condition in details would be a challenge even for adults.
Also, given the circumstances I think French doctors have plenty to do right now!

3) Given the circumstances I find this "my royal family is more compassionate than your royal family" in poor taste and to be honest offensive as well!

You clearly haven't seen the notice that Margrethe's birthday celebrations have been postponed due to COVID-19 or the Coronavirus fund the CP family are doing right now. I'd advise you to look on Kongehuset's website, Instagram and YouTube channels. Now is not the time for petty comparison games.
 
This is a nice note from Frederik regarding the royal run. That his family (Mary and the kids) are included is very much in line with the Royal Run being for all and that the CP family will be participating as well.

Some encouraging words of patience and taking care of each other.
On another note, Christian has grown, they all have of course, but Christian looks taller.
 
I was just going to say Prince Christian is growing so very fast and his facial features are changing all the time. Perhaps he will be as tall as mormor. Is that right? His grandmother.
To emphasise the point about running they placed the running shoes on the steps possibly for people like me who cannot read Danish but can understand what the topic is that they are trying to convey.

And I thought Queen Margrethe's speech about covid 19 was excellent. Her Majesty really inspires me.
 
:previous:
Farmor actually.
Farmor = father's mother = Frederik's mother, QMII.
Mormor = mother's mother = Mary's late mother.
Bedstemor = grandmother or grandmother in general.

Farfar = father's father = Frederik's dad.
Morfar = mother's father = John Donaldson.
Bedstefar = grandfather or grandfather in general.

No need for despair as we have about a zillion names for family members in Danish. Beforehand we used to have even more! ;)

Thanks Muhler. I will have to write it down.

Christian is already as tall as - or perhaps taller - than his father (1,83m) which means he is also taller than his farmor (1,80m)
Perhaps he is going to be as tall as his farmors farfar, Christian X. (2,01m) or his farmors far, Frederik IX. (1,98m). There were giants in this family, Margrethe and Frederik are quite small in comparison.?

John Donaldson, Mary's brother John and sister Jane are also quite tall.

https://play.billedbladet.dk/video/dronning-margrethe-viste-marys-soester-kongelige-pulterrum/
 
Yes Mary's family is quite tall too. I think Mary's mother, Henrietta, may not has been so tall. For when you see Mary with her father and siblings they are all tall except Mary and Patricia ;)

So even though neither Frederik nor Mary fill much in the landscape, their children have good conditions for getting quite tall as most of their grandparents were / are tall people.
 
:daneflag2: Today, on a wonderful summer day in Denmark, Crown Prince Frederik's Royal Run 2020 was originally to be held.

It has become a huge folksy event in the Danish streets and again this year, up to 100,000 Danes were signed up to run together with Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary and their four children in the streets.

As we all know a pandemic named Covid-19 hit the world and Royal Run was postponed until September and later completely canceled, as it is too uncertain to be able to say when it is safe to gather so many thousands of people in the streets.

Let's take revenge next year!

I can almost promise that not only the Danes, but also Frederik, Mary and the children think it is a pity.

Me too. I, my husband and children should have run in Copenhagen.

It is also always a pleasure to experience Frederik, Mary and children SO CLOSE as we do during the Royal Run, and to hear the children being interviewed so casually during the day and all that we unfortunately gonna miss this year. And there happens quite a bit in a year with children.

Then it’s just to look forward to next year, Royal Run 2021. Now everyone has a year more to train, so it can only be good :D

This page takes today a look at some of the great highlights from Royal Run 2018 and 2019. Enjoy!

"Royal Run 2021 is postponed to 12 September

Due to the situation with COVID-19 in society, the Royal Run in Denmark is postponed from May to September. In Greenland, work is underway to find a new date.
In connection with the postponement, His Royal Highness the Crown Prince states, among other things: "I hope that many of you will use the time until 12 September to maintain the joy of exercise and running that Royal Run has already brought with it."
Running was therefore also on the program when the Crown Prince together with his two youngest children, Their Royal Highnesses Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, this weekend was out for a walk in the winter weather.

I adore this family! Watching Frederik out running with Vincent and Josephine made me want to get out there! (despite it's midnight and I'm in my jammies).:D Great video to inspire everyone to keep active and ready for the Sept 12 Royal Run.

What a lovely morning video to announce that Royal Run must be postponed to September. Vincent and Josephine are cool and it's great to exercise with ones kids. You can almost feel the beautiful frosty weather in your cheeks. I think it's recorded in the park at Fredensborg, isn’t it?

And a great picture:

Looks to be at Fredensborg. Maybe recorded Friday/Saturday morning before going to Trend.

Beautiful video and pictures by Vincent! Love that they include Grace.
 
The Royal Run: 2019-2021

Today is Royal Run.

The event will be covered live on TV2, which the majority here cannot see.
However, there will naturally be updates, photos and videos uploaded all day both on tv.dk and other news sites. And this is where our newsdiggers come in, because I will focus on writing about what is going on.

The coverage starts at 10.10 and will end around 18.00 this evening, with a summary around 20.00 or so.

The public service channel Dr.dk will not show live, but I should be very surprised if they don't upload videos.

Billedbladet.dk will show live as well, but probably with only one camera at a time, so that will be limited.

BT.dk will probably also have a camera or two here and there, but I should be surprised if they don't have a live blog.

The whole thing will start in the town of Sønderborg, where Frederik will run at 11.00.
So keep an eye on:
jv.dk
tvsyd.dk

Then Mary will run in the city of Aalborg at 14.00.
So keep an eye on:
tv2nord.dk
nordjyske.dk

Sometime between 12.00 and 16.00 Frederik will run in the city of Odense.
So keep an eye on:
tv2fyn.dk
fyens.dk

At some point between 19.00 and 23.00 Frederik will run in Copenhagen. And this is where his family might join him or at least cheer on him and the other runners.
So keep an eye on
berlingske.dk (they usually have great photos)
tv2lorry.dk

I wonder if Royal Run isn't so well established by now that it merits a thread of its own?

Frederik will run a celebratory run at 17.30 in Copenhagen with the para-athletes who took part in the Olympics in Tokyo.

Frederik has right now left Dannebrog in the harbor of Sønderborg.

I'm glad Ulla Terkelsen are among the team commenting on this event. Then we are guaranteed some intelligent and witty remarks.

Frederik is being interviewed by TV2. Nothing particular being said. He's delighted so many will run today. He is in fine form, no problems with his back.

A little less than 80.000 have signed up for Royal Run and then there are the unofficial runs here and there.
The population of DK is 6.8 million, so you do the math.

Frederik is being received by reenactors in uniforms from the Second Schleswigan War of 1864. Sønderborg was the site of a very severe bombardment.
Frederik is to fire a cannon from 1864, a muzzle-loader. The flower or cannon-girl is also in uniform and about five years old or so.
Frederik went to NCO school in Sønderborg so he knows the town well.

Frederik is doing what he does best, mingling and chatting with people.

The cannon will start the run at 11.00.
Frederik is of course not being driven to the starting point. He is cycling. - Very appropriate.

This part of DK is very national and it's indeed here that most have signed up for the run outside Copenhagen. 18.000.
The PM of Schleswig-Holstein will also take part in the run. There are of course close relations across the border today.

-------------

Frederik being interviewed again standing on a beer-box (crate?) it's that sort of details that are so great.

Frederik says Mary is almost in Aalborg, so coverage from there coming up.

----------------

The people running with Frederik shortly are veterans who suffer from various forms of mental traumas.

----------------

Mary will run 5 km in Aalborg.
Frederik will soon run one mile = 1.600 km. But a Danish mile is 7 km.

I like how this special event for Fred's 50th birthday has become an annual event that so many people can participate and enjoy. :flowers:
Even though it's not as glittering or grand as some other event that we royalwatchers like to see, it encourages a positive lifestyle and I can imagine it is well received by the common people in Denmark?
 
Some good tags to follow on IG for the Royal Run are #royalrun, #royalrun2020, #royalrun2021
Many participants and vendors already posting about today's event.

Speaking of IG, here's a very nice picture of Frederik https://www.instagram.com/p/CTttnFfgoaH/?utm_medium=copy_link

This is fantastic. and sure seeing the gowns, uniforms and bling is fun....but it is full of protocol, etc. Something like the Royal Run is fun because it gets people out and active...especially this year after such a long time of lockdowns and quarantines. And from all I've seen so far, this type of event is where Frederik is at his utmost best...this is why people just love him and find him so down to earth and relatable. That goes for Mary as well.

It is a very popular thing! And growing.
Some 30 % who take part today have never taken part in a such a run before.
It's also a very communal activity and there is a sense of taking part side by side and on eye-level with M&F in particular, even if you only see a glimpse of them.

Go in Sønderborg!

Sailors from Dannebrog are also taking part in the run.
Frederik is running with the veterans.
--------------------

It's optional whether you sprint, jog, walk or roll. (Some are in wheelchairs.)

--------------

Frederik has finished his first run.
Frederik hints that his family will take part. So that suggests that his children will run at some point as well.

----------------

Frederik is posing with ordinary people, so expect loads of posts on Facebook, Twitter and so on.

Frederik is boarding Dannebrog.

---------------

A 98 year old Yrsa will run 5 km. That's pretty impressive!

------------------

More women than men have signed up for Royal Run, especially among the first time runners.
It's a communal activity where you need not feel ashamed over your wide hips, because there are lots of other women in all ages and shapes.

-----------

Frederik is standing on the side of a street cheering people on. No PET officers around. If there are, they are keeping a very good distance!

---------------

Times:
Mary will run at 13.40 in Aalborg.

Frederik will run in Odense at 14.45.

Frederik will run in Copenhagen at 17.40.
And again at 19.05.

One of the routes will pass Amalienborg, so we can indeed expect the CP-family to cheer on the runners outside.

The clock is 11.20 DK-time as the times above are added.

Isabella, Vincent and Josephine will run the Family-Mile - solo - at 12.40 in Copenhagen.

Because mom and dad are in other parts of DK.
Christian may not take part today, because it may not be a weekend off at the boarding school this weekend.

Live blog from BT: https://www.bt.dk/royale/live-foelg-aarets-royal-run-bt-er-til-stede-i-alle-byer
Lots of photos, updates and videos coming up there.
