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
Start time
Number of finishers 2014
2.2km children's race (Børneløbet) 10.30 57

21.1km half marathon (Halvmarathon) 12.00 109

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).
