Copenhagen Marathon Group training
Sparta Athletics & Running organises the official Copenhagen Marathon training and offers free Sunday Runs in Copenhagen, where we run the long run of the week together. Everyone is welcome no matter their level or age – we have a pace for everyone.
Run with us
Run your long training runs with Sparta in Copenhagen! You are welcome both if you are training for the Copenhagen Marathon but also if you just enjoy running longer distances. It is easy to combine our Sunday runs with your training program and training philosophy as long runs at an easy pace is a part of almost any marathon training program.
You are welcome to join as many or as few Sundays you would like and there is no need to sign up before – you simply just show up. If you want to run with us it is a good idea to join the Facebook group Spartas søndagsfællestræning as the routes and any changes will be posted there.
Some Sundays the training is replaced by a Sparta Race, which you have to sign up for – both for the experience but also to test your pace at a real race before the Copenhagen Marathon.
We run every Sunday at 9:00 AM from November 13 until the Copenhagen Marathon on May 14. Meeting point is on the tracks at Østerbro Stadion. Entrance is through the gate from Gunnar Nu Hansens Plads 11, DK-2100 Copenhagen.
You can find toilets, changing rooms and luggage storage in Idrætshuset at Østerbro Stadion. Often there is a water station during the run but not always. We recommend you bring your own hydration belt to reduce the use of single use drinking cups.
We divide into pace groups, in the following paces (min/km): 4:30, 4:45, 5:00, 5:15, 5:30, 5:45, 6:00, 6:15 and 6:30. Both new and experienced marathon runners are most welcome.
