Copenhagen Marathon: 16 May 2004
Warm sunny day; bright sunshine; some headwind
A well organised race in Copenhagen. This was a new route, with three approximately even laps (the first and third almost identical). This new route allowed the organisers to close off the roads for the first time for this event. The course is a bit winding, requiring some care to avoid bollards and step over kerbs, but it was quite well marshalled and there is no danger of getting lost.
Copenhagen is pictaresque; it is peaceful, clean and civilised, and a lovely place to spend the weekend. Thoroughly recommended.
Karen Hancock had a great return to marathon running after 15 years away, surpassing her own expectations to finish fourth V45 lady. Henriette Wendt completed her first marathon, achieving her goal of running under 4 hours. And I finally managed to break the 3 hour barrier. So despite the hot weather, we all came away rather pleased.
