  The Helsinki Marathon incorporates the beautiful capital city of Finland, lately known as the 'Silicone Valley on Ice' due to the country's development in telecommunications.  The event is a well organized show case of Helsinki and provides competitors an ideal opportunity to run over the course on which Rob De Castella, Australia, won the inaugural marathon of the 1st World Track Championships in 1983.

There are 19 refreshment stations along the course as well as the accompanying music, which has become a pleasant part of so many events worldwide.

All runners, who do finish the Marathon in 6 hours, will be awarded a medal, T-shirt, and later a race result magazine with diploma.

Good food and drink service is available at the finish. Showers, sauna and swimming are available at the Swimming Stadium, next to the Olympic Stadium.

The Hans Christian Andersen event is a new event on the international calendar, with the first marathon taking place in October 2000. However, they have slotted straight into the routine of providing an event that will rival the big city marathons. The route is free of traffic for a period of 5 hours and you are able to run through the streets of Odense. Making this the hallmark of a genuine city marathon.

The course is flat and is not designed to trouble the participants. The event has an event expo and is developing the entertainment for the whole family, offering a sub 5km run for the youngsters.

The event is held in the third largest city of Denmark. Odense is situated in the middle of Denmark, on the island Funen. Hans Christian Andersen, the famous fairy tale poet, was born in Odense and this is why the race is named as such.
