FRH Run for Heritage

Europe’s religious heritage is a not only an integral part of the history of the countries and regions but also contributes to the present-day cultural and spiritual life of Europeans.

The Run for Heritage campaign is an FRH initiative that encourages young people to be active while discovering the wonderful  religious heritage jewels of their towns and villages that often go overlooked. There are many formulas for this: a trekking day, a cycling tour, a tailor-made tour of buildings, a cultural visit to an interesting spot, etc. The result: a fun activity to learn about historic religious buildings while having a good time and being physically active.

The campaign was launched in 2021 to give young people the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors after the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. The European Year of Youth in 2022 was a fantastic opportunity to continue to bring young people across Europe closer to our rich and diverse religious heritage with new Run for Heritage activities. We are now  determined to keep the campaign alive and strong. Find out how you can get involved too!

Be part of Run for Heritage in your village or town!

Whether you are a member of the FRH network or not we invite you to make the most of this opportunity to promote religious heritage sites close to you by involving the youth in a fun activity outdoors.
