Copenhagen Marathon

More runners than ever before lined up for the start of the 30th Copenhagen Marathon - and rain did not dampen their passion for the race.

Denmark's capital draws runners from all over the world and Copenhagen returns a lot. Runners get to see some of the city's nicest features as they run through the metropolis. The majestic city hall shortly after the start, the world-famous leisure park Tivoli as well as The Little Mermaid statue lie with 42.2 km long distance. The start and finish are directly in front of the Danish Royal Library and the marathon's three laps means runners have a good look at the city features, while supporters can cheer them on many times.

All finishers were treated as winners and hours later many could be seen proudly wearing their medals as they enjoyed the city centre's post-race atmosphere - with the sun shining once again.

Japanese runners took first place in the men's and women's events. Toyokazu Yoshimura won his race in a time of hours 2.18.04 and Chihiro Tanaka took women's honours in 2.40.59.
