Held on three Sundays between January and March, the VCM Winterlaufserie (Winter Running Series) aims at preparing runners for the Vienna City Marathon 2015.

All races take place on a 7km loop course in the Prater, Vienna's largest public park. The course is completely flat, AIMS-certified, and closed to traffic.

Participants can decide during the race if they want to run one lap (7km), two laps (14km), or three laps and a bit (21.1km half marathon).

The third event in March also offers the possibility to run four laps (28km).

In 2014, each Winterlauf event had approximately 800 participants.
