Marathon on the Rocks is a splendid but challenging coastal trail run on the northern part of Bornholm. The race features both a marathon and a half marathon.
Bornholm is a Danish Island known as the pearl of the Baltic Sea. Also known as the Sunshine Island or the Rocky Island, Bornholm is an intriguing combination of forest, coastal cliffs and small beaches, with a twist of Medieval castle ruins and small fishing towns with harbors and smokehouses.
The entire route will take place on small biking tracks, forest trails and the rescue paths close to the coastline from the start in Gudhjem, around Hammershus to the finish line in Skovly, just north of Rønne.
It's no surprise that Bornholm has been voted as Europe's second best island in 2019 (Conde Nast). To truly appreciate the enchanting atmosphere this island has to offer, one must be ready to adapt to their laid-back island lifestyle.

MEASURES AGAINST COVID-19 SET BY DANISH AUTHORITIES
In addition to these travel restrictions, there are other measures that must be taken into account to reduce social contact. We are aware of these measures and will be implementing these on race day. Currently, there is a ban on gatherings with more than 100 people, this number is set to increase to 200 in August. In order to comply with these regulations, the marathon and half-marathon will begin at the same time from different start areas. This will allow us to have participants split into two different groups and therefore encourage social distancing.
