Wörthersee Half Marathon, Klagenfurt, Austria (Copyright © 2013 Hendrik Böttger / runinternational.eu)


Every year in mid-August, Kärnten läuft ("Carinthia runs"), together with a large number of international athletes.

Last year, around 2700 runners completed the half marathon along the northern shore of the Wörthersee, and over 1400 took part in the 10.5km quarter marathon.

The half marathon winners were Robert Langat (1:02:47) and Lucy Wambui Murigi (1:14:05), both of Kenya.

The start of the 21km race is on the lakeside promenade in Velden, a fashionable resort at the western end of the Wörthersee.

The finish line is in the Europapark at the eastern end of the lake, approximately four kilometres from the city centre of Klagenfurt, capital of the state of Carinthia.

The course is gently undulating and traffic-free. As a large part of the shore is in private hands only a few sections of the route are along the lakefront.
