Starting and finishing in the small town of Pleinfeld, which is about 45 kilometres south of the city centre of Nürnberg (Nuremberg), the marathon is two laps of an undulating course around the Großer Brombachsee (pictured). The route includes approximately 420 metres of ascent.

The race is run on a mix of asphalt and gravel roads. The difference between the lowest and the highest point on the course is about 70 metres.

Participants in the half marathon run one lap around the lake (ca. 240 metres of ascent).

Both the half and the full marathon course have been accurately measured and certified by the German Athletics Federation DLV.
