As “The Great Wall Marathon” is this year postponed to September 25, the “People’s Park Marathon” will also be held in 2021, in Mr. Great Wall home town Roskilde’s city center. This as a tribute to “The Great Wall Marathon”, on the original date of this race, May 15, 2021.
As elsewhere in the world, freedom of assembly is limited in Denmark at this time. Likewise, everyone is encouraged to distance themselves from one another. Peoples Park Marathon 2021 shows respect for these rules and the participant’s health.
Peoples Park Marathon 2021 is a cannonball marathon with 10 participants starting every 30 seconds. It is emphasized that the participants throughout the race keep distance between each other and avoid close contact by overtaking.
Peoples Park Marathon 2021 is run in and around Roskilde’s most beautiful park. It is a prologue of 560 meters to be run twice, followed by a 4108 meter route to be completed 10 times.
