Ossiach (Austria), Friday 13 June 2014
Held on a Friday night in June, the Ossiacher See Nachthalbmarathon in Austria's state of Kärnten (Carinthia) attracts approximately 700 or more runners and nordic walkers, many of them holidaymakers and day trippers from neighbouring countries.
The event comprises a half marathon, a 7km race, and children's races.
Participants in the half marathon run 21.1km of an undulating point-to-point course on roads and cycleways around the western part of the 10km-long Lake Ossiach.
The route alternates in direction each year. In 2014, competitors will run from Bodensdorf on the northern shore to Ossiach on the southern shore. Pre-race ferry transportation from Ossiach to the start area is included in the entry fees.
