What is Olympic Day?

Olympic Day is a worldwide event celebrated on 23 June each year across the five continents. It celebrates getting active and living the Olympic Values – friendship, excellence and respect – through the pillars of Olympic Day.

What are the Olympic Day pillars?

  • Move
  • Learn
  • Discover
  • Together for a better world!

Last year, over 3.5 million people took part in the Olympic Day celebrations all around the world. This year, we want YOU and your school/family to join the celebrations!

How can I take part?

What you do is up to you – whether moving with an Olympic Day run, learning about the Olympic Values, or discovering new ways to get active.
