Race timing service is provided by Ultimate Sport Service by means of a timing chip incorporated on the backside of your bib number.

Please do not remove the timing chip from the bib number, bend it or modify it in any way.

Bib number mounting

Your bib number must be attached on the front of your shirt (not below waist or on your back!) and must be visible at all times. If incorrectly mounted, timing cannot be guaranteed.

The bib number can be disposed of after the race.

Split times

Split times are registered at every 5 km and at 21.1 km. At kilometer marks 10, 20, 21.1, 30, and 40 there will be clock displays so you can see your brutto time.

Gross and net times

The top 20 W/M winners of the Copenhagen Marathon are settled in gross times, which is the time from gun start to the individual finish time. The official finish time for all other contestants is the net time, which is the time from startling line to finish line.

Course time limit

The official course time limit is:

3 hours net time at 21.1 km
6 hours net time at 42.2 km

Participants who have not yet passed the half marathon mark (21.1 km) after 3 hours net time, or who are unable to finish within 6 hours net time, are made aware that the race direction reserves the right to:

  • begin reopening roads to traffic, after which normal traffic rules and regulations must be complied with
  • begin removing course demarcation barriers (course maps can be requested from race officials)
  • begin shutting down hydration stations including toilets and medical aid
  • begin clearing the finish area along with stands with food and fluids
  • Further, goal video and race timing (incl. splits) can no longer be guaranteed

If you drop out or are unable to finish the race, it is important that you do not cross the finish line.

In case you need guidance or assistance to get to the finish area, report to a race official or to the medical staff at the hydration stations.
