Copenhagen Marathon vs. the SAYSKY founder


On Sunday, May 13, the SAYSKY founder Lars C. Pedersen will be toeing the line for Copenhagen Marathon once again. To make things a little bit more interesting, we've decided to set up a competition. If you can predict his finish time, you'll be rewarded with a SAYSKY race set consisting of the Pace Shorts and Splinter SS Light Tee in green splinter camo. That's the cool set you can see on the picture below.

Further down, you'll find some more info about Lars' preparations leading up to the race, as well as some competition guidelines.

To keep things sporty and in line, please see the guidelines below:

  • The person who'll get closest to his actual finish time, will be rewarded with the race set. We'll reach out to the winner directly.
  • You can submit your bid via the official competition post on either of the SAYSKY Instagram or Facebook pages.
  • The bid must be submitted no later than May 13, 9.30 CET.



Lars has taken down no less than 10 marathons in the past two years, with most of them being around or below the 3:00h mark. His "worst" performance was in Boston last year, where he crossed the finish line in 3:09h. In his defence, we can add that it was a very warm day. However, we're also expecting Sunday to be a hot one, so you might want to consider this as well.

Lars has only averaged a weekly 35,8k in 2018, with his last long run being a steady 28k in pace 4.23. This was last Sunday. He also finished Berlin Half in 1:25h earlier this year. For the very nerdy specifics, go check him out on Strava.

So how will he perform on Sunday? Is he potentially going to beat his 2:54h finish time from last year in Copenhagen? We're all pretty excited to see.
