Group Training

The official and free Telenor Copenhagen Marathon group training takes place every Sunday from November until race day in May.

Everybody is welcome.

Time & place

We meet at Østerbro Stadion, Gunnar Nu Hansens Plads, DK-2100 Copenhagen Ø, every Sunday at 9:30 a.m. on the first weekend of November. The training continues every Sunday until race day.

How to participate

The training is free and open to everyone – no matter your level or ambitions. You don’t need to sign up, and you can join as many or few trainings you feel like.

We recommend you join the training events on Facebook, which is where any changes and practical information will be posted.

Pace teams

All runners will be divided into 11 different pace teams from 4:15 to 6:30 min/km. Both new and experienced marathon runners are most welcome.

The paces are (min/km) 4:15 – 4:30 – 4:45 – 5:00 – 5:15 – 5:30 – 5:45 – 6:00 – 6:15 – 6:30 – 7:00

Training plan & test races

Long slow runs are a vital part of almost every marathon training programme, which makes this training easy to combine with most training plans or philosophies. We’ve even put in a number of opportunities to test your training progress, for instance at the Nike Marathontest series consisting of three races from February to April.

Practical

Changing rooms and showers are available in Idrætshuset, Gunnar Nu Hansens Plads 7, just next to the stadium. If you need a place to store your personal belongings during the training, you can use the lockers in the hall. Bring your own padlock.
