This Stadtlauf attracts around 500 runners and nordic walkers to the small town of Frohnleiten which sits in the narrow Mur Valley in Austria's state of Styria (Steiermark), approximately 30km to the north of the city of Graz.

The event offers children's races, a 2.4km ‘Teamlauf’, a 4.8km run (one lap), a 9.6km race (two laps), and two nordic walking competitions (4.8km and 10.8km).

Starting and finishing on Frohnleiten's very pretty main square, participants run on undulating roads through residential areas and farmland to the village of Adriach and then along the River Mur (partly on gravel) back to Frohnleiten.
