It is tough to run a marathon, so you might as well have fun while doing it. And that’s what you will at the Copenhagen Marathon. Here, you can look forward to a fantastic route with plenty of entertainment, refreshments, and beautiful sights along the way.
Right from the start the participants are led into the heart of Copenhagen. The city was declared the capital of Denmark in the early 15th century, so you are surrounded by centuries of history as you run through the beautiful, old streets.
New on the course!
The course also passes through the lovely neighborhoods of Østerbro, Nørrebro, and Vesterbro, which surround the inner city. And, of course, the green gem Frederiksberg.
This year, runners will pass by some of the most beautiful parts of the district, as the course, for the first time, goes past Frederiksberg City Hall and down the fantastic Frederiksberg Allé, established in 1704.
In short, you can look forward to a flat and fast course with plenty to see along the way.
