Donau City, Vienna, Austria (Copyright © Anja Zechner 2016 / runinternational.eu)


The Vienna City Marathon is Austria's biggest running event featuring an Inclusion Run for charity, kids' races, a 5k run or walk (all on Saturday afternoon), a half marathon, a marathon and a marathon relay for teams of four runners (on Sunday morning).

Both the half and the full marathon are scenic point-to-point races starting at the DC Tower 1, the tallest scyscraper in the country (pictured), and finishing at the venerable old Burgtheater, approximately five kilometres from the start area.

The route visits many of Vienna's best sights—the Danube, the famous Ferris wheel, the wooded Prater park, the Donaukanal, the Schönbrunn Palace and the many impressive buildings on the imperial Ringstraße.

There's a difference of 44 metres between the lowest and the highest point on the course but this is hardly perceptible during the race, and we would call this course flat and fast.
