The Wörthersee Trail offers three very hilly multi-terrain races, which are run over a mix of trails and roads around the 16km-long Wörthersee in southern Austria.

The 57km ultra marathon is one loop around the lake. The start and the finish are in the Europapark at the eastern end of the Wörthersee, approximately four kilometres from the city centre of Klagenfurt.

Participants in the 30km race join the field in the resort of Velden at the lake's western end. The 15km run starts off in Maria Wörth on the southern shore.

In 2010, the ultra marathon winners were Gernot Seidl (4:34:51) and Ulrike Striednig (5:42:33).
