High5 Copenhagen Marathon competition

As part of its sponsorship of the Copenhagen Marathon 2016, sports nutrition brand High5 is offering a competition for two lucky winners to get a free entry into next year’s event – which takes place on Sunday May 22 2016.

The competition, which is accessible to runners on the High5 website, poses the following question:

  • Over 800,000

Competition entries are limited to residents of the EU. Prizes will be provided by High5. The prize is not transferable and cannot be exchanged for cash. The prize must be accepted or rejected within 7 days of being notified. The competition ends at midnight on 16 December 2015.

The Copenhagen Marathon course is a one loop course starting in the harbour front on Islands Brygge, continuing through Inner Copenhagen, Østerbro, Nørrebro and Vesterbro and back to the starting point at Islands Brygge.

Offering a veritable sightseeing tour around the city of Copenhagen, and being launched onto the course over the iconic Langebro Bridge across the city harbour, runners will be able to take in a panoramic view of the city with its architectural monuments and historical towers.

Covering most of central Copenhagen, runners get to experience the different atmospheres and moods that feature each and every area of the city, including the green Østerbro, the multi-cultural Nørrebro, the ultra hip Vesterbro and back across the harbour to the finish on Islands Brygge.

  • The course has a flat elevation profile
  • A genuine city marathon, the course runs only through the central parts of Copenhagen
  • The course surface is mainly asphalt with a few short cobblestone stretches
  • The course is measured and approved by the Danish Athletic Federation DAF and the International Association of Athletics Federations IAAF/AIMS
