Highlights

Torshavn Marathon takes place in the beautiful and stunning scenery surrounding Tórshavn, the smallest capital of the world. Take in the cosy atmosphere of the city and the breathtaking view along the fjord surrounded by waterfalls and exceptionally green hills and mountains.

Overview

The Tórshavn Marathon course is commencing from the center of Tórshavn, continuing around the city along the seaside, on nicely paved roads and through peaceful city spaces. After a scenic 8k around a large part of the city, the runners continues to the beautiful and scening fjord of Kaldbak, offering  both demanding hills and completely flat areas. This is the hilliest and literally most breathtaking part of the route. Returning from the fjord the runners continues through the city and will be able to take in the authentic and cosy atmosphere of the diverse architecture and narrow streets of the old parts of Tórshavn. The last 8k of the route takes the runners to the neighbouring suburbs of Tórshavn offering a stunning panoramic seaside view of the whole city, before returning to Tórshavn and the finishing area.
