Cheer on all the runners

Running a half-marathon requires both hard training and willpower, which is why it’s worth its weight in gold when spectators, friends, and family are there to give the runners the best experience and cheer them on when the wall hits.

Have a great day as a spectator

There are plenty of reasons to cheer on friends and family when they run their half-marathon. Besides making them happy, it’s also a great day for you as a spectator. You can even pick up a cheering card at the Copenhagen Half Marathon Expo in the days leading up to the race, so the thousands of runners really know you’re there.

Around the course you’ll find several entertainment spots and power zones, all of which are perfect areas for you to cheer on the runners. The zones are filled with entertainment for all ages and a great atmosphere. Explore the route map to see the different entertainment spots and power zones.

There’s also a lot going on during the day in the start and finish area, where you can watch the elite runners cross the finish line. Check the times so you don’t miss out.
