Olympic Day is free and open to everyone.

Organisers stated in a release that the event is not a fundraiser but to promote Olympism. Olympic Day is celebrated the world over on 23 June when hundreds of thousands of people – young and old – get moving and participate in sporting activities.

The event is hosted to promote participation in sport regardless of age, gender or athletic ability. Over the last two decades, the event has helped to spread the Olympic ideals to every corner of the world. The CIOC has hosted this event for several years and every year it has become a bigger success.
