Welcome to Runners Area
20. March 2024

The Runners Area is the heart of Copenhagen Marathon. Here you can eat, drink and enjoy the marathon party with your friends and family all day.

 

There’s plenty to think about before a marathon. That’s why we’ve set up a lovely Runners Area in Fælledparken – right next to the start and finish line – where you can relax and enjoy the atmosphere before, during and after the race. The Runners Area is of course open to everyone. Therefore, it’s also a great place for your friends and family to hang out while they wait for you to cross the finish line.

Here’s what you can find in the area.

Luggage Storage
We’ll take good care of your race bag while you run. Just attach your luggage tag with your race number to your race bag and drop it off in the big white tents. Be aware that there may be a queue, so arrive in good time and be part of the atmosphere on the square. When you reach the finish line, it’s a good idea to get out of your running shoes and into dry clothes – preferably before your legs get too stiff.

Red Bull
Stop by Red Bull’s zone with the big teepee, where there’s a party before, during and after the race. Quench your thirst and re-energize with free Red Bull samplers while relaxing on the grass – alone or with family and friends.

PR bell
Have you set a personal best? It’s time to celebrate! Come and ring the bell to let everyone know how well you did.

Hydration station
Thirsty before or after the race? Stop by our hydration station in the Runners Area, where our friendly helpers are ready with a cup of water. After the race you can also enjoy a some cola at the station.

Volt: Extra luggage storage
Need to store a little more luggage than your race bag because you’re heading out into the world after your marathon? Then Volt can help you. At Volt you can rent a locker that is yours for the day. You order the locker online and receive a code – and then the locker is yours from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm on race day.

Stretch out with PureGym
It’s a good idea to move your body a little after a long run. When you cross the finish line, we would therefore like to invite you to a nice and guided stretch out with PureGym’s instructors. It takes place in PureGym’s large area, which is marked with a portal and beach flags. There will be yoga mats and foam rollers that you can borrow, and you can watch all the exercises on the big screen along the way.

New sessions are starting all the time, so drop by and get the blood flowing to your tired muscles – you’ll be glad you did. And of course, it’s free.
12.00 to 16.00

Food and drinks
Some people run fast, while others take it easy. No matter how long it takes you to cover the 42.195 kilometers, you’ll need something to eat and drink afterwards. You can get that at one of the food trucks in the Runners Area. Here you can look forward to OLIOLI, which serves healthy and delicious Pokébowls. Carlsberg also has two bars where you can quench your thirst with a cold beer or soda.

Vichy sunscreen
It’s important to take care of your skin when you’re out in the open air. That’s why in the Runners Area you can meet a lot of people from Vichy who will be handing out sunscreen samples.

Big screen
It will also be possible to follow the race live on a big screen in the square. Remember to download the Copenhagen Marathon app, where you can select and follow the runners you know. You can read more about the app here.

Medics
If you feel unwell after the race or need treatment in any other way, we have a team ready to help you in the medics tent.

Restrooms
The Runners Area is also where you will find our toilets. Even though we have booked, there is always pressure from the runners before the start, so arrive early so you have plenty of time to queue. Also, remember that there are restrooms at all the aid stations along the route.

Help desk
Are you unsure about something? Then come and ask. Our help desk is open all day and we’re ready to help you.

Celebration Photo
You’re a marathon runner – and no one can ever take that away from you. We’re ready to take a great photo of you – for free – so come and capture your big day with your well-deserved medal around your neck.

We look forward to seeing you, your family and friends for a great day at Runner’s Area!
