WELCOME Dear Athletes, Officials, Judges, Volunteers and Guests, In 2004 the Masters Athletic Community took part in the 14th European Veterans Athletics Championships Stadia. It started July 21st and finished August 1st – 11 days of competition and action. 3700 athletes followed the invitation of Aarhus in those days and went home with great memories. Aarhus 1900 A/M organized the championships in cooperation with the cities of Aarhus and Randers. Leif-Henning Jensen – President of the Club in those days and Egon Poulsen – leading the technical committee – are names that are still connected with the European Championships this year. These days we are hosted by a modern City of Aarhus during our European Masters Athletics Championships. 12 years have passed and most of you will be fascinated by the changes in the city. The Aarhus 1900 A/M team is again ready to fulfil all the demands of great competitions for Masters Athletes. This time it is Mikkel Larsen who is pulling the strings in the back. We expect more than 4000 competitors for the stadia competitions but a lot more will attend the Half Marathon on the last day of the championship. EMA Council decided to take the marathon out of the stadia events and transferred it this year to Wroclaw (Poland) on September 10th. There might be more than 9000 people joining the Half Marathon because it is opened to the public as well. Aarhus will be the place of great championships because more and more athletes are in better shapes. Most of you did a very hard training to participate in different events. Good luck to all of you. Stay healthy and fit and enjoy the spirit of Aarhus. Without our officials, judges and volunteers these championships could not be done. They will work together more than 50,000 hours all in all during these days of competition, but some started the preparation years before. Thank you very much to all of you on behalf of the athletes and EMA Council to make these championships possible. We all might make mistakes but be sure, we will solve them. In a respectful and tolerant atmosphere we will again share the hospitality of our European Masters Athletics Championships – thank you Aarhus, thank you Denmark to be again with you. On behalf of EMA Council Kurt Kaschke EMA President


Welcome to Aarhus - Welcome to the European Athletics Masters Athletics Championships Stadia. It is a pleasure for me to welcome all of you. Aarhus is an active and living city. Sport is about competition, but also about fellowship and togetherness. Sport connects people. It gives us something to have in common. It gives us insight into other people and creates new, strong friendships. The European Athletics Masters Athletics Championships Stadia is proof of this. It shows that the love of sport and fellowship is something you never outgrow. Aarhus is a living city in all possibly ways. This year, the city is the European Capital of Culture. It is an exceptional time to visit Aarhus. The city and its entire surrounding region is buzzing with activity and has something for every taste. From Olafur Eliasson’s impressive ”Your Rainbow Panorama” on top of the city’s art museum, ARoS, you can see a spectacular, colourful view of the city. The new Moesgaard Museum takes you all the way back to the Stone Age and, not least, the Viking Age, when Aarhus was founded at the mouth of the stream in the woods by the beautiful Aarhus Bay. The period in between can be experienced at close hand in the open-air museum, The Old Town. Here you can get a first-hand impression of how we lived a hundred years ago, but it is also possible to experience our own history in the newly built quarter of the city from the 70s. Aarhus is known as the city of smiles. In Denmark we say that a smile is the shortest distance between people. In fact, no part of Aarhus is far away. The many things to experience in the city can be reached in only a few minutes by the new light rail system or one of the many free city bikes. Once again: Welcome to Aarhus. I hope that you will enjoy your stay and our city. Rabih Azad-Ahmad Mayor of Sport, Culture and Citizen Services, the City of Aarhus.

Dear athletes, friends and families. I give you a hearty welcome to Aarhus and the 20th European Masters Athletics Championships Stadia, and I hope your visit will bring you an abundance of new and exciting impressions and experiences. We have drawn on our experience from organising big athletics events, such as the EVACS in Aarhus and Randers in 2004, as well as made many new and innovative cooperations with public and private partners in order to make the championships as memorable as possible.

Aarhus 1900 A/M is, with almost 1200 members, one of the largest athletics and running clubs in Denmark. We have active members in all age groups, from children to masters, and all levels, from the absolute elite with Olympic medals, to members who participate purely for the shared joy of sports and friendship. As such, our hope is that we can all meet in the true spirit of Masters Athletics at the Championships in an atmosphere of international friendship and cooperation, lifelong joy of sports and friendly competition – combined with a touch of Danish “hygge”.

Welcome to Aarhus A vibrant mix of youthful energy and a blast from the past makes Aarhus a city with an energetic beat of the pulse. In Aarhus, when we say walking distance, we really do mean walking distance. From here, beach, harbor and forest are all within reach of a 30-minute walk. Denmark’s second largest city has a thriving art, culture and food scene that is set to expand through 2017, where Aarhus is European Capital of Culture. New development along our industrial coastline – including Dokk1, a cultural center and the largest public library in Scandinavia – as well as a light rail expected to open by early summer, are transforming Aarhus into an even more accessible cultural capital. Other highlights are ARoS, the gallery known for its “Your Rainbow Panorama” floor with a kaleidoscopic view of the city; the Moesgaard Museum, dedicated to cultural history; a concert hall, home to the Danish National Opera; the “Iceberg,” a striking residential building on the water; “Den Gamle By” (“The Old Town”), a unique international attraction, and several Michelin-starred restaurants. Additionally, Aarhus has been selected as shopping city number one in Scandinavia and in 2016 Lonely Planet put Aarhus at the top of the list of Europe’s hottest destinations.

Useful information for your stay in Denmark Weather Denmark has a temperate climate, characterized with cool summers, with a mean day temperature in July of 21,2 °C. The position between a continent and an ocean causes weather to change often. Because of Denmark’s northern location, there are long bright summer days with sunrise at 4:30 am and sunset at 10 pm.


Currency and payments The currency in Denmark is Danske Kroner, ”Danish Crowns”, (DKK). One Euro is worth appr. 7,5 DKK. Shops are not legally obliged to accept Euros, but most places still do. All EMACS 2017 places of competition, as well as most shops and restaurants, accept cash, credit cards and some versions of MobilePay. Tipping In Denmark it is not a requirement to leave tips for eg. taxi drivers or waiters – but it is always appreciated.

Time-zone During EMACS Denmark time will follow the Central European Summer Time (CEST). This is the standard clock time observed during the period of summer daylight-saving in those European countries which observe Central European Time (UTC + one hour) during the rest of the year Water We encourage drinking tap water in Denmark - it’s safe and it helps the environment as well as your wallet. Emergency and Police Call 112 and follow the instructions. 


Top Sights in Aarhus “Den Gamle By” - The Old Town Museum ”Den Gamle By” is a National Open Air Museum of Urban History and Culture. The attraction has been awarded three Michelin stars and has welcomed more than 3 million visitors over the course of the last 10 years. Here you can meet the people and characters of the past, experience life as it was in in their dwellings. Try out old games for children or go on an exploration through-out the museum’s extensive collections and exhibitions. Pat the horses and watch out for the geese. You can also visit the historical shops and taste the cakes baked with recipes from 1885. For more information, visit: Tivoli Friheden Tivoli Friheden is Aarhus’ theme park located within walking distance from the city centre in the beautiful Marselisborg Forest, right next to Ceres Park and Arena, the main venue of EMACS 2017. In Tivoli Friheden, you will find 4 roller coasters, 40 rides, stalls, games and playgrounds. There are restaurants to suit every taste and if you wish to bring your own picnic basket, there are BBQs and dining areas for this. The cozy garden offers plenty of experiences with beauty, entertainment, concerts, theatre and much more. For more information, visit:


ARoS ARoS is the main art museum in Aarhus and one of the largest museums in Northern Europe. On the roof of ARoS you can also visit ”Your Rainbow Panorama”. Here, you can walk around in a 150 meter long, circular panoramic path with 360º views of the surrounding city. At the lower levels of the museum you can enjoy the major special exhibitions, with the ”nine rooms” presenting international art installations. The upper floors house the museum’s own collections of art from the 19th century up to the present day. For more information, visit: Moesgaard Museum Prehistory presented innovatively in a breathtaking architectural setting makes for a world class museum experience when you visit the Moesgaard Museum - also due to its location in the beautiful natural surroundings south of Aarhus, overlooking the woods and sea. The past comes alive and the people in the exhibits will step forward and provide the visitors with a better understanding of the past and how we arrived at where we are in the present. For more information, visit: Shopping in Aarhus You only need to stroll through Aarhus to feel the special atmosphere and to see people with bulging shoppings bags before you understand why Aarhus has been named the best shopping city in Northern Europe. Everything your heart could desire you will find in Aarhus. Design, fashion, lifestyle and trend-setting – these are just some of the words which describe the wealth of great shopping experiences awaiting you in the best shopping centre in Denmark.

Events during EMACS 2017 European Capital of Culture 2017 At the same time as EMACS 2017, there will be many activities in Aarhus due to the city’s status as European Capital of Culture, 2017. This means that during all of 2017, an abundance of different cultural and social events will take place all around the city. We encourage everyone interested in these events to visit the official website, where you can find more information about the events and the thoughts behind them. The main theme is, quite appropriately, “Rethink”, which EMACS 2017 will support by promoting the message that age is no hindrance, when it comes to sports, and that it is always possible to strive for new goals. Viking Moot 29/7-30/7 All over Scandinavia and even in the rest of Europe, Viking Moots have come to life. At the end of every July, Moesgaard Museum hosts the annual Viking Moot near the beach east of the museum. The Viking Moot at Moesgaard is Denmark’s first, oldest and largest Viking Moot. More than a thousand Vikings arrive on the beach at Moesgaard, where they raise a camp to allow the warriors to spend an entire week practicing for the great battle that takes place on the weekend – dubbed the unofficial world championships in Viking Fighting. As was the case in the Viking Age, merchants and craftsmen follow in the wake of the warriors, and when the event is open for visitors, they show their crafting skills as well as sell their (mainly) historically correct, merchandise. For more information, visit Moesgaard Museum’s website, and click on “Viking Moot”.


EMACS Athletes’ party 31/7 Monday July 31st, EMACS will organize an Athletes Party. Meet friends, have fun and enjoy the company with fellow athletes from all around Europe in cozy and friendly settings! On the day before the rest-day, we will host up to 400 participants for a wonderful night with welcome drink, buffet dinner, dance and entertainment. The party will be held at the scenic Hotel Marselis on the coast side close to both stadium and the city center. Only 400 spots will be for sale! Book your ticket together with the event registration. The price is only 45 euro. A cash bar will sell beer, wines, soft drinks etc.

European Region of Gastronomy At the moment, Aarhus is experiencing a gastronomical blooming with three Michelin star restaurants, a horde of passionate farmers and producers and a creative bunch of food entrepreneurs, ever-developing the food scene in Aarhus. The large interest among the food entrepreneurs of Aarhus is seen after the city has been glorified gastronomically during the last couple of years. First, the awarding of a Michelin star to three of the city’s restaurants and later on with great praise of the gastronomical level of the city in articles published by New York Times and Lonely Plant. In line with this, Aarhus has, along with Central Denmark Region, been appointed European Region of Gastronomy 2017. The interest from the city’s food entrepreneurs is overwhelming and by now, more than 100 events are already in the programme. You can also join the largest communal dinner ever presented in Denmark, oyster safaris or taste some of Denmark’s finest chefs’ interpretation of the classic Danish hotdog. All to celebrate the extraordinary produce of the region. See the preliminary programme here:

Aarhus Half Marathon When the city of Aarhus in 2017 hosts the European Masters Athletics Championship Stadia (EMACS), the great sport event will finish off with a festival of a running event aimed at both the EMACS contestants and anyone else who is fond of running. Aarhus 1900 and EMACS are inviting everyone to AARHUS HALF MARATHON – a unique race that the best runners in Europe compete in. It is on the last day of the championships that the European Champions in Half Marathon are to be found. Thus, when we seal off the city because of the Half Marathon, our aim is to encourage each and every one of you to join in on this running spectacle in the heart of Aarhus. Using the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships held in Copenhagen in 2014 as inspiration, the race on August 6th 2017 will be an exceptional and exciting running event with room for 10,000 runners on the starting point in front of Ceres Park. With our remarkable route going through Aarhus’ city centre, the international and Danish runners will experience the best which Aarhus has to show. They will take an exciting and fast run through Aarhus where we celebrate being European Capital of Culture 2017 with a “signature-run” that includes everything that Aarhus stands for: modernity, internationally-recognized cultural life, beautiful surroundings, and open-mindedness. After a breathtaking route going through the streets of Aarhus, the finish line will be at Ceres Park. We expect many local runners to participate in the race, and thus contribute in making it a unique running event – both for the local runners and for the competitors coming from over 40 European nations to see the city in connection with EMACS. This will result in a fantastic event with an international touch that will be instrumental in creating a colourful and different race. Registration: EMACS runners: Register through the normal registration procedure for athletics events at EMACS 2017. Everyone else: We encourage family, friends and everyone else to participate, since the race is open for all ages (including people younger than 35). If you are NOT participating as an EMACS athlete, you should register for the event at this website (scroll down for information in English):

Masters Athletics and EMACS 2017

Masters athletics is all about the lifelong joy of sports as well as the creation of a forum where friendship, understanding and cooperation across age groups, social groups and national borders have a chance to develop and, hopefully, flourish. We at EMACS 2017 strive to enhance such an environment by providing the best possible event, so that the experience will be as good and joyful as possible for contestants, visitors and volunteers alike. We hope that we can all meet here in Aarhus in the spirit of the event and enjoy the friendly competition that the championships try to promote in order to make this, the 20th celebration of EMACS, a memorable event for all involved. The EMACS team
