The Copenhagen Marathon is an annual marathon that takes place on the streets of Copenhagen, Denmark. Established in 1980, it is held in May and has around 10,000 participants. It is a World Athletics Bronze Label race.[1]

The course is a mostly flat loop that begins and ends at the harbourfront of Islands Brygge, and wanders through the municipalities of Copenhagen and Frederiksberg.[2] There is a time limit of six hours.[3]

The 2020 edition of the race was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, with all paying registrants having the option to transfer their entry to the next edition of the race, or to obtain a full refund.[4]
