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.
