Summer in Aarhus will be devoted to athletics when the European Masters Athletics Championships Stadia (EMACS) 2017 takes place. Aarhus, designated as European Capital of Culture in 2017, will present tough and entertaining track and field events, race walk, and half marathon competitions. More than 4,000 athletes and up to 4,000 additional visitors from more than 40 countries are expected to attend. During the eleven days of competition, there will be a full programme at the refurbished city stadium, Ceres Park, and at the new suburban facilities at Viby Stadium. Definitely the perfect setting for many new records and great sporting moments.
