Free and for runners of all abilities, the official group training organized by Sparta Athletics & Running takes place every Sunday all year around.
Time & place: We meet at Østerbro Stadion, Gunnar Nu Hansens Plads, DK-2100 Copenhagen Ø, every Sunday at 9:00 a.m. 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 groups: 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 – 4:45 – 5:00 – 5:15 – 5:30 – 5:45 – 6:00 – 6:15 – 6.30
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.
Facilities: There are changing rooms, showers and toilets available. It is also possible to have your bag/extra clothes stored during training, but you have to bring your own padlock.
