About Bestseller Aarhus City Halvmarathon


A new tradition of running has been forged in Aarhus. Aarhus Motion, in partnership with BESTSELLER, welcomes you to 21.097 km of enjoyment and experiences. The route takes its runnners through a completely closed-off central Aarhus, on a day when vehicles will be directed to the garage.


Along the way, you will pass by all of Aarhus’ famous attractions, including The Old Town (Den Gamle By), the art museum (Aros Aarhus kunstmuseum) and the themepark, Tivoli Friheden. You will see the very best of Aarhus.


You will certainly not run short of things to amuse yourself with along the route. We have established more than 40 entertainment locations and hot spots to stimulate all the senses. You’ll meet everyone from samba dancers to DJ’s and rock bands. A unique feature is the Tour Caravan, which is known from the large cycle races. This drives in front of the runners to get the 50.000+ spectators into the right mood, so they’re ready to help and cheer you along your way.


We have room for everyone – beginners, joggers, experienced joggers and elite runners! For 26% of the participants in the 2017, BESTSELLER Aarhus City Halfmarathon was their first halfmarathon ever. Why not take up the challenge? We promise you that you are not going to regret it!
