What you'll do
We go "Forest and Palace running" in Aarhus and do it before the crowds arrive! We run at a casual, non-competitive pace in the forest along the coast. The part of the forest near the city is known as Marselisborg Skovene (the Marselisborg Forests). We also visit Marselisborg Palace, which is the summer and Christmas residence of the Royal family. The Palace grounds, including the Queen's rose garden, are open to the public when the Royal family is not in residence, and we will run ine the gardens. If the Royal family is in residence at the Palace, we will visit the nearby horse-racing tracks. The run is just about 8 km and we make stops along the way to talk about the sights, and take pictures. This is a perfect experience for the traveler who wants to stick to a fitness routine but doesn't want to waste their limited time in Aarhus working out in a gym!
A good run can sometimes make you feel like a brand-new person. I run 3-4 times a week in Aarhus and suburbs. Mostly in my running club Aarhus 1900. I was born and raised in Copenhagen, but lived the past 25 years in Aarhus, and i must say that Aarhus is really the best place to run. I maybe like the way a runner named Monte Davis phrased it best, as quoted in the 1976 book The Joy of Running: “It’s hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time,” he said. “Also, there are those hours of clear-headedness that follow a long run".
