Group Training

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

Time & place

We meet at Østerbro Stadion, Gunnar Nu Hansens Plads, DK-2100 Copenhagen Ø, every Sunday at 9:30 am starting in the first weekend of November until race day.

How can I 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) 4:30 – 4:40 – 4:50 – 5:00 – 5:10 – 5:20 – 5:30 – 5:45 – 6:00 – 6:15 – 6:30

The training is easy to combine with most training programmes 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 four races from January to April.

Practical details

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, there are lockers in the hall. Just remember to bring your own padlock.
