Copenhagen Half Marathon Tour means 21,1 kilometers at our disposal where we are able to show runners both the main sights of the city along with some of the more hidden sights. On this tour we will leave the beaten tourist path and you will get under the surface of the city. The main sights are of course The Little Mermaid, The Royal Palace, Nyhavn and Christiansborg, while the hidden sights….will remain hidden until you join our tour :-).
Teaser: Your chance to run a ½ marathon in Copenhagen year round
Distance: 21,1 km
Duration: 2-3 hours
On the Copenhagen Half Marathon Tour, Runners will have the chance to wave and bump into the Royal Family while also rubbing shoulders with the pushers at Christiania. You will run past the most expensive apartments in the city, the mindblowing houseboats and also through the quaint canals and 16th century houses.
This tour will take around 2-3 hours and all through the tour we chat away about politics, culture and traditions while also sharing some local insights. This is truly a unique chance to get an amazing run in here in Copenhagen, while being in the company of a local Dane who are eager to let you into our Danish heads, culture and city.
After our Copenhagen Half Marathon Tour runners will have seen most of Copenhagen and can with good conscience splash out on the gourmet restaurants in Copenhagen, or venture outside the city. Or you can of course go all in on the sightseeing in Copenhagen.
Do we run the official Copenhagen Half Marathon Route?
No absolutely not and here is why. The offical Copenhagen Half Marathon route goes via main roads of the city and this would be a very boring tour with lots of traffic and many stops. Instead we have planned a route that allows a good running flow while also passing the most interesting areas in Copenhagen.
What are you waiting for ? Go go go go go!
In case you are looking for the official Copenhagen Half Marathon then it is in Sepetember every year and organised by our good friends Sparta. We can thoroughly recommend it and you can read more about it here. The Copenhagen Marathon takes place every May and you can read more abut it here. Good Luck and enjoy!
Reviews of the Half Marathon Tour:
“I highly recommend this tour as a way to jump into the city and feel like you are ready to absorb the culture at its fullest!” (Elizabeth, Canada)
“It was also awesome to have a guide to tell me where to run because, after this, I realized that I would’ve had a pretty hard time figuring out where to go myself! It was seriously the best part of my whole trip.” (Jennifer, Massachusetts)
“I’m still buzzing from my tour around Copenhagen with Henrik. Loved every minute!” (Pete, UK)
