The nature and the terrain around Skagen offer excellent running conditions. The flat terrain means that you don’t have to worry about steep slopes and instead you can focus on running and enjoy the sights. The trail is a very pleasant one, not only because of the nature, but also because of the varied underground, which puts less of a strain on your feet than running on tarmac only.

You will pass many beautiful and iconic places, such as Den Tilsandede Kirke, which was covered by sand drifts in the 17’th century.

Skagen Marathon leads you through the beautiful nature at the top of Denmark. The Marathon trail leads you through the dune plantation, along the beaches, past Gl. Skagen and the northern most point of Denmark and through the city of Skagen. The traffic will be partially closed, in order to ensure the safety of the participants. 

The marathon route has been measured by DAF.

Start and finish at the Town Hall parking lot.
