In the summer of 2017, Aarhus is hosting the biggest athletics event ever held in Denmark, i.e. the European Masters Athletics Championships Stadia (EMACS). The EMACS is the European Masters in athletics for athletes aged 35 and up.
The motto is “You Are Never Too Old” and together with Aarhus 2017 and their slogan “Rethink”, the EMACS invites 4,000 participants and app. 3,500 of their companions from more than 40 countries to come to Aarhus and participate in the sporty and cultural festivities.
The competition will be based at Aarhus Stadium/CERES Park where the facilities at and around the stadium will be used. Furthermore, the facilities at Viby Idrætspark will be used, while the race walking and half marathon competitions will be held around town. Aarhus 1900 Atletik/Motion is behind the event in cooperation with Aarhus Municipality, among others.
In order to complete the event and make it a huge success, EMACS 2017 expects to need more than 600 volunteers, especially volunteers with good language skills to help the visitors with relevant information in their mother tongue (German, Spanish, Polish, Italian, French, Swedish, Russian, Portuguese, Finnish, etc.).
