The Halbmarathon Hall-Wattens (Half Marathon Hall-Wattens) is a running event held each year in May in the state of Tyrol in Austria.

Two scenic routes, 4.4km and 21.9km long, have been designed to give runners a fine impression of the towns and villages in the Lower Inn Valley.

The start and the finish line are in the historic centre of Hall in Tirol, an old salt-mining town located just about eight kilometres from the city of Innsbruck.

The 21.9km race (which is slightly longer than the classic half marathon distance) consists of two undulating loops (4.4km+17.5km).

Participants run through Hall's old town with its many late-medieval buildings, through the imposing Hasegg Castle, along the river Inn, through villages and rural areas, and through the town of Wattens which is known worldwide for its Swarovski Crystal Worlds visitor centre, one of Austria's biggest tourist attractions.

The race is run mainly on asphalt roads and cycleways.
