Northern Europe’s largest KMD Iron Man triathlon race will affect traffic in Copenhagen on Sunday.

The fifth annual edition this year will have over 3,000 competitors, and the many athletes swimming, running and cycling around our waterways and streets will lead to a number of roadblocks and traffic diversions in the capital.
