A part of the course was run on the grounds and grass roof of the Moesgaard Museum.[1] The race was held in challenging conditions, due to the very muddy course and steep hills.[2] The senior men's race was won by Ugandan Joshua Cheptegei, while the senior women's race was won by Kenyan Hellen Obiri.
