The Tegernseelauf draws the crowds to the Tegernsee, a 6km-long lake that sits at the foot of the Alps in Germany's state of Bavaria.

Last year, more than 3,000 runners completed the half marathon course around the lake. Around 800 took part in the 10k race which is run out and back along the lake's eastern shore.

Starting and finishing in Gmund am Tegernsee, a small town at the northern tip of the lake, both races are run on asphalt roads. Some short sections are on gravel.

The 10k route is gently undulating. The half marathon route, however, is rather challenging as it features a couple of hills on the last five kilometres.
