Three major events will be held this year to promote an active role of parents with their children, thus sharing moments that will last in the memory of both. Daddyhood Dadathlon is a sports event created to inspire dads and kids of all ages to do a physical activity together.

The event has been organized by Daddyhood Europe, a non-profit foundation that seeks to break with the historical stereotypes created regarding the role of parents with their children.

This year Daddyhood Dadathlon races will take place in three stages:

  • April 17th to 24th: Running with kids (strollers allowed)
  • June 20th to 27th: Cycling with kids (bike trailers or a child seat allowed)
  • September 19th to 26th: Trekking with kids (carrier backpack allowed)

The 2021 Daddyhood Dadathlon edition will be held virtually and to allow flexibility to participants, each event will be open for participation during one whole week.

The races are conceived for individual teams (one father with his child/ren). It is possible to team up with other fathers and their children, to motivate each other and have even more fun, but each team member will have to complete the full distance of the race.

Participants can choose to take part in only one or two races, but to complete the full Daddyhood Dadathlon, they will need to compete in all three races/disciplines.

Daddyhood Dadathlon consists of three different distance levels at which participants can compete, depending on their capabilities and ambitions:

  • Bronze level – Running 3k, cycling 7k, hiking 2k
  • Silver level – Running 7k, cycling 15k, hiking 5k
  • Gold level – Running 15k, cycling 30k, hiking 10k

The main goal of Daddyhood Dadathlon is to complete the chosen level in each of the races while bonding and having fun. There will be a leader board available to track the times but the prizes will be awarded to the team who will make the most attractive and most inspiring pictures or videos and post them online, tagging @daddyhoodeurope #DaddyHoodDadathlon.
