For The Copenhagen Half Marathon its maiden race could not have gone better with 19,425 local and international participants and a five-star rating for "Quality Road Race" from European Athletics as a reward for this success. Building on the rising popularity of running as a leisure activity - especially in Denmark - and its reputation as a fun and inclusive blend of sport, culture, food and spontaneity, The Copenhagen Half Marathon is now an unmissable calendar event for fans of running as well as the local community.

Good practice guide:
City races have been drawing more and more people in the past years. Preparations for marathons and half-marathons and its modes of preparation should be carefully planned. However, the main goal is to complete the race - on your own tempo, time and step. An event like this makes the city a participant as a whole and raises awareness for good causes, goals and physical activity as a strong tool. It can be organised by a sports organisation or municipality.
