Aarhus takes its place on the world map!
In just two years, a new tradition of running has been forged in Aarhus. Aarhus Motion, in partnership with Nykredit, welcomes you to 21.097 km of enjoyment and experiences. The route takes its runnners through a completely closed-off central Aarhus, on a day when vehicles will be directed to the garage.
Sightseeing as you run
Along the way, you will pass by all of Aarhus' famous attractions, including The Old Town (Den Gamle By), the art museum (Aros Aarhus kunstmuseum) and the themepark, Tivoli Friheden. You will see the very best of Aarhus.
Hot Spots and entertainment
You'll certainly not run short of things to amuse yourself along the route. We have established more than 30 entertainment locations and hot spots to stimulate all the senses. You'll meet everyone from samba dancers to DJ's and rock bands. A unique feature is the Tour Caravan, which is known from the large cycle races. This drives ahead of the runners to get the 40.000+ spectators into the right mood, so they're ready to help and cheer you along your way.
We have room for everyone - beginners, joggers, experienced joggers and elite runners! For 30% of the participants in the 2013, Nykredit Aarhus City Halfmarathon was their first halfmarathon ever. Why not take up the challenge? We promis you that you are not going to regret it!
Run a good time
The tour is not only attractive and scenic; for many runners, the route has also resulted in some excellent running times. A massive 40% of runners finished with a better time than they had expected, and a further 40% finished in the time they had set themselves to run.
Don't wait too long to register...
99% of those who took part in the 2013 race have expressed a wish to run the Nykredit Aarhus City Halfmarathon again, so great demand is expected for the 10,000 places. Don't wait too long, then, to sign yourself up, if you wish to be a part of the year's ultimate running experience.
