The route includes 490 metres of ascent and 196 metres of descent.

After the race, participants can take a shorter route to get down to the award ceremony in Kahlenbergerdorf.

Last year, 141 runners crossed the finish line on the Kahlenberg. The fastest finishers were Tim Robertson of New Zealand (35 minutes 44 seconds) and Catriona Buchanan of Great Britain (42 minutes 51 seconds).
