Pop-up Sports Events Organised in May
People are attracted to exercise on the principle of restaurant day.
The first “Exercise Day Of Your Dreams” is organised on Tuesday the 10th of May. The day’s idea is similar to the restaurant day when anyone can set up their own pop-up restaurant.
On the exercise day, however, pop-up exercise events are organised, and for example private individuals, sports clubs, companies, work places and schools are invited join. The goal is to get over a million of Finns to exercise on that day.
The purpose is to introduce and find new sports and inspire others to try them and move together. The events can be targeted to a specific group, like students for instance, or open to the public.
The exercise day has its own website (http://www.unelmienliikuntapaiva.fi/en) where anyone can report their event or look for events using a map. The exercise day can be followed on social media via Facebook and Twitter.
On the theme day, Hämeenlinna offers for instance free couple dance lessons, frisbee golf bicycle orienteering, public ice skating and a two kilometre long walking test.
Riihimäki organises for example a Joogaa ja pilatesta jäykistyneille -event (Yoga and pilates for rigid people -event), and in Hyvinkää several events have been reported.
