Copenhagen Marathon moves to different start and finish area in 2023
16. February 2023

After more than 10 years along the harbour front, CPH Marathon moves to Øster Allé as of May this year.

When the gun goes off for the 44th Copenhagen Marathon on Sunday, May 14, it will not be with the backdrop of the harbour front at Islands Brygge.

Instead, from this year on, the many thousand marathon runners can look forward to enjoying the magnificent vue down Øster Allé which has been the home stretch of the CPH Half for the past 8 years.

Relocating to realize event vision

Moving to Øster Allé and into the center of the popular and spacious urban park ‘Fælledparken’ is an important step towards realizing the future ambitions for the CPH Marathon.

The relocation removes spatial barriers that are currently limiting the logistical and organizational opportunities. The new start and finish area will thus allow the event to grow, develop and further improve to become an even better experience for all our participants and supporters as well.

New course – same scenic experience

The relocation of the start and finish area also involves a course change.

However, the course changes will not make your marathon experience any less memorable – on the contrary.

You can still look forward to a breathtakingly beautiful course through all the historic, urban, hip, and green districts of Copenhagen. And with Copenhagen being designated the World Architecture Capital of 2023, we will put some extra spot on the Danish capital city’s iconic buildings and charming mix of modern and historic architechture.

As soon as all the details regarding the new course have been confirmed, we will share the course with you. Actually, we can already reveal that you will be passing by one of Copenhagen’s oldest and most famous amusement parks – and many more highlights.

We look forward to taking this next step together with participants, sponsors and partners of the CPH Marathon.
