Held on three Sunday mornings between January and March, the Winterlaufserie aims at preparing runners for the Vienna City Marathon in mid-April.

All races take place on a 7km loop course in the Prater, Vienna's largest public park. The course is completely flat, accurately measured, and traffic-free.

Participants can decide during the race if they want to run one lap (7km), two laps (14km), or three laps and a bit (21.1km half marathon). The third event in March also offers the possibility to run four laps (28km).

In 2012, each event of the series had around 700 participants.
