Graz Opera Ring
The full marathon is a two lap race, starting and finishing is the Opera House. The race starts with a mildly uphill 2km slope to the Hilmteich, a pleasant little pond in a leafy part of the city. From there, the route runs 3km downhill towards the River Mur, passing near to the Botanical Garden and University. Participants then pass through the residential and industrial areas of the suburbs before a short section along a footpath next to the river. The final kilometre runs along tram tracks on Herrengasse, Graz's impressive main shopping street.
More than 11,000 participants and 40,000 spectators each year provide a great atmosphere along the scenic route through the old town of Graz.In addition gastronomy and some musical hotspots care for to amuse the runners and spectators and off the track.
