Mary, kids join fun run

Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWS -

PRINCESS Mary and her chil­dren have shown their sporty side in Den­mark’s an­nual Royal Run.

The fun runs which em­pha­sise fam­ily par­tic­i­pa­tion are held in Den­mark’s three largest cities as well as the Faroe Is­lands and the is­land of Born­holm.

Last year it was Crown Prince Fred­erik who put on his run­ning shoes in cel­e­bra­tion of his 50th birth­day, but this year it was Tas­ma­nian-born Princess Mary’s time to shine.

Sit­ting out the race be­cause of a her­ni­ated disc, the Prince cheered on his wife and kids in the run.

Wear­ing navy tights, a white T-shirt and a cap, the Princess, 47, joined par­tic­i­pants in the five mile event in the city of Aal­borg.

She then ran with her chil­dren Prince Chris­tian, 13, Princess Is­abella, 12, Prince Vin­cent and Princess Josephine, both 8, in the one mile event.

More than 80,000 took part in the Royal Run.
