Held annually on Easter Monday, the Leuchtturmlauf draws approximately 250 to 300 runners to the eastern shore of the Neusiedler See, Austria's largest lake, located on the border with Hungary.

The event offers a 10km, a 6.6km, and a 3.3km run. Children run 1km.

The route is a flat and scenic 3.3km loop on asphalt and gravel paths through parkland in the resort of Podersdorf am See, the most popular resort in the region.

Each lap includes an out-and-back run to the Leuchtturm (lighthouse), which stands at the end of a 200-metre-long pier.

In 2012, runners from seven countries took part in the Leuchtturmlauf. The top 10K finishers were Wolfgang Wallner (33:06) and Cornelia Köpper (38:58)
