Hallstatt, Austria (Author: Nick Csakany / en.wikipedia / Public Domain)


The Hallstättersee Rundlauf features a very scenic half marathon route around the Hallstätter See, a 5.9km-long lake in the Salzkammergut area in Austria.

The race is run on a mix of asphalt roads (ca. 13km) and gravel paths and trails (ca. 8km). The route is partly flat and partly undulating, with a difference of 21 metres between the lowest and the highest point on the course. Overall, the route includes 97 metres of ascent and 97 metres of descent.

Starting in the village of Lahn on the western shore, participants run in an anticlockwise direction around the lake which is hemmed in by steep mountains on three sides.

The finish line is on the main square of Hallstatt (pictured), a very picturesque old village, situated approximately one kilometre to the north of Lahn.
