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.
