The Bad Loipersdorfer Buschenschanklauf is held annually in the autumn in a hilly wine-producing region in Austria's Steiermark (Styria) province, near the borders with Hungary and Slovenia.

The event is popular for its scenic multi-terrain routes which pass several Buschenschank wine taverns offering home-made wine and cold buffets of traditional peasant food, accompanied by live music.

Four race distances for runners of all ages are available ...

  • 500m
  • 3km
  • 10km
  • 21.1km Halbmarathon

... and one for nordic walkers:

  • 12km

The 10km run, the 12km nordic walking and the 21.1km half marathon feature hilly point-to-point routes that begin at the thermal spa complex of Therme Loipersdorf and finish in the village of Bad Loipersdorf.

The 500m and 3km kids' races and the 3km Hobbylauf start and end in the village.

Over the last years, the nordic walking route has been the most popular route, with many participants taking their time at the Buschenschank aid stations to sample the pleasures of country life.
