The race takes place on forest roads; some of which are paved but most of them are gravelled. Occasionally there may be holes, roots or rocks on the road, so it’s a good idea to pay attention to the road!
Route maps can be copied from the webpage but there are many officials to guide you in the forest. You participate at your own risk.
Hydration and energy
There are drink stations every 5 km with water, energy drinks and bananas. On the half- and full marathon routes, there are also cokes and candy at two of the stations - even a morning sharpener at Gyldenløveshøj, should you be in the mood for that!
In the finish area, there are drinks, fruit and chocolate bars for all the runners.
It is possible to have your own drinks brought to the drink stations on the full marathon route.
The drinks need to be handed in at the sports arena no later than 9.30.
