  • 7km (one lap)
  • half marathon (three laps)
  • marathon (six laps)
  • half marathon relay (3x7km)

Starting and finishing on the athletics track of the Ernst-Happel-Stadion, Austria's biggest stadium, the route is a 7032.5m-long loop through the Prater, Vienna's largest public park. The course is pancake-flat and traffic-free.

Approximately 4.5km of each lap are run on the Hauptallee, a beautiful avenue that is lined with chestnut trees (pictured).
