This year marks a significant milestone for the 5K@EASD community: 2020 is the 15th anniversary of Novo Nordisk’s support of the 5K@EASD. Together we will celebrate this anniversary by running or walking from our home cities.

For those who will join the 5K@EASD community for the first time in 2020, we have 8 week training plans for both running and walking available to help you get started.



Global community for change
Since 2014, the 5K@EASD community has supported World Diabetes Foundation projects and raised over €60,000 for the WDF Projects in Mali (2014), Peru (2015), Myanmar (2016), Rwanda (2017), Kenya (2018) and Jordan (2019). In celebration of the 15th anniversary, Novo Nordisk is challenging participants to step up and take the WDF Pledge. 100% of the proceeds from the WDF Pledge will directly benefit the World Diabetes Foundation Kyrgyzstan Project 2020. Novo Nordisk will donate on behalf of the first 10,000 registrants and finishers.

Please note, there will be no runner shirt for the 5K@EASD Virtual Challenge. We encourage everyone to support the World Diabetes Foundation by taking the WDF Pledge. For more information, please click here.


Over 1,100 people from 98 countries completed the 5K@EASD last year in Barcelona. This year, we want to encourage even more to take part, so spread the word, follow the 5K@EASD on social media and bring your friends along for a virtual run or walk.





As a world leader in diabetes care, Novo Nordisk has been dedicated to empowering people to manage their condition for nearly a century.

Changing Diabetes® is Novo Nordisk’s response to this challenge. The program brings together patients, policymakers, healthcare professionals and non-governmental organizations to help empower people to make lifestyle changes that positively affect their diabetes.
