The Leopoldilauf is held in honour of Saint Leopold III, patron saint of Austria and of Vienna, whose feast day is on November 15th.

Staged on a 7km loop course in the vast Prater park in Vienna, the event offers a 7k, a 14k, and a half marathon. The course is certified, pancake-flat, and traffic-free.

The start and finish are on Prater Hauptallee, an over 4km-long avenue through the park. The route passes Vienna's famous Giant Ferris Wheel (pictured).

Participants can use the showers and changing facilities of the LCC athletic club at the Ernst-Happel-Stadion, Austria's national stadium which is just around the corner.
