Large parts of Denmark are located on the islands of Sjaelland (incl. the capital Copenhagen), Lolland, Falster and Fyn. Consequently, the races like the Copenhagen Marathon have to be regarded as island races in a strict sense. The listing below for these big Danish islands only includes some prominent races; obviously, many more exist but are not mentioned here.

Palma de Mallorca Halfmarathon (HM), was: 21 March 2004
Norbert Reiner participated 2004 and reports:
"Laut Veranstalter waren ca. 1800 Teilnehmer am Start. Die drei ersten waren wieder einmal die Kenianer. Aber auch uns Hobbyläufer hat es dort sehr gut gefallen. Die Strecke führte an der grossen Kathedrale vorbei und entlang am Yachthafen und an den Top Hotels in Palma City. Es wurden mehrere Schleifen gelaufen. Das Wettter war auch ansprechend  um die 18Grad und es gab nur wenig Wind. Neben einer guten Getränkeversorgung gab es für jeden ein schönes T-shirt und eine Finishermedaille."
