copenhagen 2014

More than 12,000 runners participated in this today’s 35th version of the Nykredit Copenhagen Marathon, and a mere 2 hours 17 minutes and 54 seconds after race start, favourite Julius Mutai of Kenya crossed the finish line as this year’s winner. Much pointed to a new course record, but as it turns out, much can happen in the span of a marathon. [Read more…]

Parkhoi, Sanchez take Copenhagen 2012 titles

While the 10,500 Nykredit Copenhagen Marathon 2012 Finishers are probably still recovering from Sunday’s accomplishment, race organizer Sparta Athletics and Running can look back at an overly successful marathon event which was surprisingly won by domestic Martin Parkhøi in 2:24.49. Due to the sudden arrival of summer with plus 20 degrees, the record breaking number of finishers expected beforehand was not reached. Instead, a new starter record was set with 10,500 runners behind the start lines. [Read more…]

Copenhagen winner 2011 report

Marten Bostrom, Copenhagen Marathon winner 2011 report.

Mårten Boström from Finland

Mårten Boström from Finland

Copenhagen is only a short flight from Helsinki and Denmark is known to be flat so I figured it would be a good city to shoot for a top position in a city marathon. In all my previous marathons (Odense, Paris, Fukuoka, Houston, Ottawa, Chicago) I have run with a set time goal in mind. This time I wanted to change the mentality all around and focus just on winning the race. A good time could be the outcome, if everything went smoothly. [Read more…]

Δημοσθένης Ευαγγελίδης

Copenhagen Marathon 2011

Φτάσαμε στην Κοπεγχάγη αεροπορικώς, δύο ημέρες πριν τον μαραθώνιο, και αποδείχτηκε ότι οι πρώτες εντυπώσεις από την πόλη ήταν εντελώς αντιπροσωπευτικές.

Πριν προσγειωθούμε, τράβηξαν την προσοχή μου οι μεγάλες ανεμογεννήτριες που είναι τοποθετημένες μεσοπέλαγα, κοντά στην εντυπωσιακή γέφυρα που ενώνει τη δανική πρωτεύουσα με το Μάλμε της Σουηδίας. Η Κοπεγχάγη είναι μια άκρως οικολογική αλλά και τεχνολογικά προηγμένη πόλη, όπου οι μετακινήσεις με τα μέσα μαζικής μεταφοράς, το ποδήλατο και τα πόδια, είναι ο κανόνας, όπως και η ανακύκλωση. Συναντάς παντού WiFi, τα αυτοκίνητα είναι δυσανάλογα λίγα στους δρόμους, ενώ η πόλη είναι πολύ καθαρή, παρά τους πολυάριθμους τουρίστες και το σχετικά μικρό αριθμό κάδων απορριμμάτων στο κέντρο.

2nd Placed Dimosthenis Evaggelidis Copenhagen Report

Dimosthenis Evaggelidis - Copenhagen Marathon 2011

Dimosthenis Evaggelidis - Copenhagen Marathon 2011

We arrived at Copenhagen by air, two days before the marathon race, and – as it turned out – our first impressions were quite representative of the city.

Before our landing, my attention was caught by the huge wind generators that were in the middle of the sea, nearby the impressive bridge connecting the Danish capital with Malmo (Sweden). Copenhagen is an absolutely ecological and technologically modern city, where moving around with public transportation, bicycle and on foot is the rule, as well as recycling. WiFi can be found anywhere, cars are relatively few on the streets and the whole city is remarkably clear, despite the many tourists and the few garbage bins downtown. [Read more…]
