Copenhagen Half Marathon

Sep 2018 Sunday
We expect 25,000 runners to be ready in the starting area at Øster Allé in September. We also expect the race to attract a strong elite – nationally and internationally.

Copenhagen Half Marathon was awarded the IAAF Road Race Bronze Label in January 2015 as the first race throughout the Nordic countries. The aim is to obtain the Gold Label, which is considered the most prestigious quality designation and which has been awarded to just a few other half marathons throughout the world.

Covering most areas of Copenhagen and Frederiksberg, the course will showcase the very best of the Danish capital. The aim has been to create an extremely fast course that would be highly spectator-friendly and featuring many of the city’s highlights. On the course the participants pass more than 20 Power Zones and entertainment venues for both runners and spectators.

The course has been measured and certified by the Danish Athletic Federation and AIMS, the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races.

Not alone is the course a sightseeing tour around Copenhagen, it also entails ideal conditions for running extremely fast. Broad roads with asphalt surface, soft curves and long straight streches ensure that both recreational runners and pro athletes are in for a first-rate race experience.
