For a worth-it destination run, drive 1/2 hour north of Odense to run along the Baltic Sea in the Hasmark/Enebærodde area. Start in Hasmark Strand, a Danish beach town full of nice Baltic-view bungalows. Head east on the paved beach road for up to 9.5 km. It’s a quiet road. At the 4 km, there’s a parking lot and the path continues east, turning to gravel, out to the point of land at the fjord entrance, Enebærode. This is a beautiful spot, with water to both sides, cows bathing in the Baltic waves, heather and pine woods, then the lighthouse (Enebærodde Fyr) out at the point. NOTE: Beach itself is not great for running.
Shorter Option: Overall, the route is 9.5 km one-way. A shorter option would be to park at the Enebærodde Parking Lot, which is at the 4 km mark of our mapped route. From there, run for up to 5 km east to the lighthouse.
