Wien (Vienna), Austria, Sunday 26 March 2017
Participants in the Wiener Halbmarathon ("Vienna Half Marathon") run three laps around the northern part of the Alte Donau (pictured).
The "Old Danube" was a section of the Danube before major river engineering works were carried out in Vienna in the 1870s. These days, it's a lake and a popular recreational area in the north-eastern part of Austria's capital Wien.
In addition to the half marathon, the event offers a 7km run (one lap), a 14km run (two laps), a half marathon relay for teams of three runners (3x7km), children's races and a 7km race for nordic walkers.
Last year, approximately 500 runners took part in the 7km run. The 14km race drew about 350 runners. More than 1,000 completed the half marathon.
