Olympic Day is nowadays developing into much more than a run or just a sports event. Based on the three pillars “move”, “learn” and “discover”, National Olympic Committees are deploying sports, cultural and educational activities that address everybody - regardless of age, gender, social background or sporting ability. The Olympic Day is meant to celebrate the beginning of the contemporary Olympic movement in 1894, when Pierre de Coubertin proposal to revive the tradition of the Olympic Games was unanimously approved in Sorbonne, Paris, and the International Olympic Committee was established.
