The International Day of Military Sports


 

ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF MILITARY SPORTS
(Former CISM DAY RUN FOR PEACE)

 
With the express purpose of marking the presence of CISM worldwide, the year 2006 saw the birth of CISM DAY RUN. The event aims at promoting the practice of sports in the military context, bringing together all community of Sports, which includes Sports Federations, Olympic Committees, and other International Institutions in contact with the Armed Forces and Ministries of Defense.
Since the first edition, in 2006, this special day is held every year on 18 February worldwide, as the most important event created to celebrate the anniversary of the Council and remind the date of its establishment.
Totally integrated in CISM solidarity principles, this event also intends to contribute to world peace and became a tradition between CISM-family worldwide. For this reason, in 2017, the event was renamed as CISM DAY RUN FOR PEACE. Up to now, 83 member countries have already organized at least once a sport activity for celebrating the date.

In 2019, CISM decided to name the 18th February, date of our anniversary, as the INTERNATIONAL DAY OF MILITARY SPORTS.

The goal is to show the world in an even stronger and more comprehensive way the presence of CISM worldwide and the importance of sports for the military and for their activities, organizing and promoting the CISM DAY RUN FOR PEACE or any other sport activities, outside or even inside the barracks, with military and civilians together worldwide, jogging, walking, skiing, carrying on together the flags of friendship, sport and peace.

Come with us. Be our guest!

Friendship through Sport!
