The best running groups in Vienna


Who says that you can only experience Vienna on a classical sightseeing tour? Pack your running shoes in your suitcase and experience the city from a new perspective. For what you might not have known: Vienna is a city of runners, no matter where you go. And because doing sports together is even more fun, you can easily join like-minded people and rediscover Vienna with one of the many running groups! The best part: the choice is huge, whether you are a beginner or more advanced, an early bird or a night owl. There is certainly a running group that suits you.

By running in a group which tests different routes, even "real Viennese" get to know unknown places. Visitors to Vienna, whether they are staying in Vienna for just a short or longer time, see completely different facets of the city. With changing venues and routes, there is no routine and there is something new every time. So also a great tip for regular visitors to Vienna!
