Experience the autumn classic for the whole family: The ultimate running feeling, thousands of enthusiastic spectators, and a unique flair! Year after year, in October, the most popular run in the southwest of Austria takes place in Graz. At the foot of the Schlossberg, with the start and finish in front of the opera of Graz, the route passes the most beautiful squares of the Styrian capital and is therefore a running sightseeing tour. With numerous competitions taking place within this event, you don’t have to be a marathon runner to get your money’s worth. It does not matter if young or old, beginner or professionals, there is something for everyone. In this four-day event, sport and exercise are not the only things being foregrounded. Following the motto of “grab your running shoes and your shopping bag”, the shopping experience in the city centre of Graz is part of the experience.
