Run A World Record Course

It all started when Copenhagen hosted the 2014 half marathon world championships.


For the first time ever, the best runners in the world came to Denmark to race in the streets of Copenhagen. The results did not only bear witness of the level of the athletes.


The world discovered that Copenhagen had a world class course.


One year later, the first edition of the Copenhagen Half Marathon took place. The ambition was for CPH Half to measure up with the best road races in the world and put Denmark on the map of running.


In 2019, after 5 years, Copenhagen saw its first road running world record ever. It was an unbelievable moment when Kamworor crossed the finish line in the phenomenal time of 58:01.


Now the world is watching, when the gun goes off on boulevard of Øster Allé, and you run off into the streets of Copenhagen to conquer one of the world's fastest half marathons.

CPH Half has earned its place on the world map and has been known as one of the places to run a fast time.

That goes for the world's best runners as well as for you, who are here to run your very first half marathon or even your number 10 half marathon!


For one single day, the roads are cleared to give you the best race experience under the ideal conditions. When the world is watching, you are capable of more, than you might think.
