About the mass participation race

In 2014 the IAAF/AL-Bank World Half Marathon Championships, held in Copenhagen, will include a mass participation race for Danish and International athletes who would like to get the full experience of a World Championships.

The elite women and men will lead the race but the ambitious recreational runners – YOU, will be right behind them when the starter pistol goes off.

At the same time TV helicopters will be hovering over Christiansborg Castle, start and finish area, to cover the International Championships live from Copenhagen. The world will have their eyes on the participants as they run 21.1 kilometres through the heart of Copenhagen. The route will be fast, flat and scenic and we hope a new record will see the day.

The whole of Denmark, friends and families are invited to come and cheer you along! Hot spots, spectator guides and entertainment programmes will be tailored for this very special day.

The 30,000 tickets for the mass participation race are sold out!
