Distance: Half Marathon
17 second short of the world record at the Copenhagen Half Marathon 2017
When it comes to half marathon, Copenhagen is the place to run fast. That was indeed underlined at Sunday's Copenhagen Half Marathon with the first three men dipping under 59 minutes
As the first road race in Scandinavia and one of the fastest half marathons in the world, the Copenhagen Half Marathon has been awarded with the International Association of Athletics Federation's (IAAF) most distinguished recognition - the IAAF Road Race Gold Label.
Copenhagen Half Marathon was awarded the IAAF Road Race Bronze Label in January 2015 as the first race throughout the Nordic countries. In January 2016 the race obtained the IAAF Road Race Silver Label.
After only two race editions, the Copenhagen Half Marathon has received the prestigious IAAF Gold Label, thus claiming a place among the very best races in the world.
