The Casinolauf takes place in the chic resort of Velden am Wörther See which sits at the western end of the Wörthersee in Austria's state of Kärnten (Carinthia).

The event offers a 6.5km race and a number of shorter races for children.

Starting and finishing at the Casino Velden, participants run five laps of a 1.3km course through Velden's town centre and along the lakeside promenade.

Over 200 runners took part in the event last year. The fastest finishers in the 6.5km run were Martin Pogelschek (21min 34sec) and Monika Lotteritsch (27min 15sec).

The Casinolauf is held annually on Austria's national day, the Nationalfeiertag, which is celebrated on October 26th.
