Mandø (Denmark), Saturday 15 August 2015
The Mandø Marathon draws approximately 500 runners to the little North Sea island of Mandø in Denmark.
Located in the Wadden Sea National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the island is surrounded by vast mudflats and tidal marshes.
At low tide, Mandø can be reached by car or tractor bus via a 4km-long (and 60cm-high) unpaved causeway which connects the island with the Jutland Peninsula.
The event offers the following races:
| Race distance
||Number of finishers 2014
|2.2km||children's race (Børneløbet)||10.30||57|
|10.5km||quarter marathon (Kvartmarathon)||13.00||237|
|21.1km||half marathon (Halvmarathon)||12.00||109|
|42.2km||full marathon (Helmarathon)||11.00||27|
Participants in the full marathon run four laps of a mostly flat route on asphalt and gravel roads around the island. The half marathon is two laps.
Last year, the marathon winners were Danni Callesen (3:04:50) and Heidi Johansen (3:22:44).
