Will and Tawnecia Tai Run in Denmark

It has been a while since Tawnecia & I have written a race report, so we figured with all of extra mental and physical challenges people are going through this year with Covid-19 we would provide a little entertainment and positivity!

We have always enjoyed Albatros Adventure Marathons around the world. They only had one race this year due to Covid-19 (the rest of the races have been cancelled), so this made the decision easy to travel to Bornholm, Denmark to enjoy the wilderness, beautiful landscape, history and friendly people, as well as support a travel company that has brought us many wonderful memories.

The course was a true trail run with the majority of the terrain taking place on hiking and biking trails overlooking the Baltic Sea. It was a challenging route with no flat sections (my Garmin stated that there was a 1.2km elevation gain). There were 26 men and 7 women who finished the marathon, as well as 12 men and 15 women who completed the half marathon. I finished the full marathon in 5:39:19 and Tawnecia completed the half marathon in 2:36:48. Runners came from the Netherlands, Austria, Germany, Ireland, UK, Denmark, USA, Russia and Canada (us).

One of our favourite things about the race was meeting a small group of runners and thereby getting to know many of them, and enjoying the "hygge" atmosphere at the end of the race with a Danish BBQ and beer.

We've included a few photos of the race (Tawnecia is in red and white at the start line with Hammershus in the background - the largest castle ruins in Northern Europe, and I am seen climbing a steep section in the Quarry).

See you on the Trails!
