Cheer on the runners
Running a marathon requires both hard training and willpower, which is why having spectators, friends and family cheer the runners on is everything. It makes it all easier when they reach those tough kilometers.
Have a great day as spectators
There are plenty of reasons to cheer for your friends and family when they run a marathon. Besides making them happy it is also a really fun day for you as a spectator. You can even pick up a cheer card at the Copenhagen Marathon Expo in the days prior to really let the many thousands runners know you are there for them.
There are several entertainment sports and power zones along the course, which are perfect areas for those cheering on the runners. The zones are filled with entertainment for all ages and great atmosphere. Explore the course to find the different entertainment spots and power zones.
During the day a lot also happens in the start and finish area. Amongst other you have the option to see the elite runners cross the finish line and watch the prize ceremony. Look up all the key events so you don’t miss anything.
Leave the car
We advise against driving on race day as several roads and parking lots will be blocked.
Go by foot or bike
The easiest way to move around is on foot or by biking. It is possible to cross the course at selected places when the runners are not passing by.
Use Public transportation
Get around easily by using public transportation. You can travel by bus, metro and S-train but be aware that several bus routes do not run regularly on race day.
Track the runners
In the Copenhagen Marathon app you can search for a person’s bib number or name and track them live. Make sure press follow so you don’t miss anything.
Send a video greeting
In the days before the race you can use the app to send video greeting to the runners you are cheering for. Then they can get that bit of extra spirit before the race or become even prouder of their achievements.
Meet the runners in Runners’ Area
You will have the opportunity to find the runners you are cheering for in the Runners’ Area after they have crossed the finish line.
Here you can all enjoy the marathon atmosphere and reload on snacks while you watch the rest of the race on the big screen.
