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.
