Riesenrad (Giant Ferris Wheel), Prater, Wien (Vienna), Austria - Copyright © 2015 Anja Zechner /


Like many other running events organized by the athletics club LCC Wien, the Adventlauf takes place in the Prater, the largest public park in Vienna.

The Prater is home to many sports venues, for instance to the Ernst-Happel-Stadion (Austria's main stadium), as well as to the ‘Wurstelprater’ amusement park with its famous Riesenrad (pictured).

Two road races are on offer, 3km and 10km long. Participants in the 10k race run two laps (3km + 7km). The course is traffic-free, accurately measured, and very flat and fast.

Almost 400 runners took part in last year's Adventlauf. The winners were Wolfgang Wallner of Austria (33min 34sec) and Erika Csomor of Hungary (37min 59sec).
