Known as the bicycle capital of the world Copenhagen is also one of the most runnable cities, and this has become a new focus for conferences and hotels, where locals and guests run together, taking advantage of the city’s many safe, clean and picturesque tracks.

Running has become an important focus area for Copenhagen as a destination with the official Tourism Organisation, Wonderful Copenhagen and the running organisation Sparta developing the city as an international running destination. This has not least been focussed around the Copenhagen Half, which is the fastest half marathon in the world, but also around the general attraction of Copenhagen as a running destination where you can explore on your own or join one of the many guided running tours. Copenhagen has been designed for running explorers; there are car free paths everywhere and the most attractive spaces like the harbour circle has been kept free of buildings keeping the trail open for everyone to enjoy. Also the short distances allows for interesting route combinations passing such highlights as the lakes, green parks and even the Queens Palace as part of a single trip.

“Copenhagen is a great place to run no matter if you are here for one of the many sport events or if you just want to get some exercise before a busy day of meetings. The city is a safe, clean and beautiful backdrop for a run, so make sure to bring your running shoes next time you visit,” says Kit Lykketoft, Director of Conventions at Wonderful Copenhagen.
