The Skagen Marathon is a multi-terrain running event held yearly since 2010 at the northern tip of Denmark.

All races (5km, 10km, 21.1km half marathon, 26km, 42.2km marathon) begin and end at the fishing port of Skagen, a small town of about 8,000 people that attracts approximately two million visitors every year.

The marathon is two laps of a gently-undulating route which takes the runners on a mix of surfaces (asphalt, gravel, trails) through the town and through the breathtakingly-beautiful dunes and moorland surrounding Skagen.
