Be a part of the attempt for the new world record

Copenhagen Half Marathon will be held on the 16th of September, where several male and female runners will attempt to achieve a new world record.

Copenhagen Half Marathon is a world-class race for everyone. Leading the race will be the world’s absolute elite, while everyone else will have the oppotunity to compete with the world’s fastest runners. The race will kick off on the 16th. of September at 11.15 PM and if we’re lucky, a new world record or even two will be set on this date.

Last year it was Abraham Cheroben who won the men’s race, with a time of 58.40 minutes, only 18 seconds from a new world record on the fast route around the Danish capital. Cheroben will be present at Copenhagen Half Marathon again this year. Erick Kiptanui will also be racing this year at CPH Half. Earlier this year, he won the Berlin Half Marathon in the time 58.42 minutes. These are the two runners with the fastest personal records but there are also 17 other runners who have a personal record under the magical 60 minutes. So it is an historically strong male team ready to compete on the 16th. of September.

The world champion will be joining the race

There are also great expectations for the women's race, to some of the competitors as strong runners and the possibility of a new world record. The defending world champion and the current world record holder in a pure women’s half marathon Netsanet Gudeta will take part in the race, and so will Joan Chelimo Melly, who took the second place at last years Copenhagen Half Marathon. Joan Melly proclaims that she will come to Copenhagen to set a new world record and that she will bring her own male pacer. 

Apart from the absolute world elite, it is expected that 22.500 other runners will compete when Copenhagen Half Marathon will be kicked off for the fourth time.
