Held in the small Schilcher wine region in Austria's state of Styria (Steiermark), the Schilcherlauf is a popular road running event which attracts around 1600 runners and nordic walkers every year.

The event offers the following races: 5.25km (one lap), 10.5km (two laps), 15.75km (three laps), 21.1km half marathon (four laps).

All races begin and end on the picturesque little Hauptplatz of Stainz, a very pretty small town with a Baroque castle on top of a hill (pictured).

The route is a gently-undulating loop through the town and nearby farmland.
