Organized by the LCC Wien, an athletics club based in Austria's capital city Vienna, the Frühlingsmarathon (Spring Marathon) features a completely flat, very fast and AIMS-certified course that offers a fine opportunity to set a personal record over the marathon or half marathon distance.

These races are available:

  • 7.03km
  • 21.1km Halbmarathon (half marathon)
  • 42.2km Marathon
  • 3 x 7.03km Halbmarathonstaffel (half marathon relay)
  • 6 x 7.03km Marathonstaffel (marathon relay)

The route is a 7,032.5-metre loop through Vienna's largest public park, the Prater, which is home to various sports venues as well as to the "Wurstelprater" amusement park with its famous Riesenrad (Ferris Wheel, pictured above).

Participants in the half marathon run three laps of this course. The marathon is six laps. The start/finish area is on Hauptallee near the Ernst-Happel-Stadion, Austria's largest stadium.
