The Aabenraa Bjergmarathon (‘Aabenraa Mountain Marathon’) is held annually in Aabenraa, a town of about 16,000 people in the Syddanmark (Southern Denmark) region.

The event offers races for the whole family:

  • 500m børneløb (kids' run)
  • 1.5km børneløb (kids' run)
  • 1.6km familie mile (1-mile family run)
  • 5km løb og walk (5k run and walk)
  • 10km løb (10k run)
  • 21.1km halvmarathon løb og walk (half marathon run and walk)
  • 42.2km marathon

Marathoners run two laps of the half marathon course, which is very scenic and very hilly (about 250 metres of ascent over the 21.1 kilometres). The second lap is run in the opposite direction.

Starting on Storetorv square, the route is on mixed terrain and takes the runners along the narrow streets of the picturesque old town, through the harbour and through woods and fields.
