22nd 'Old Town Advent Run Mödling' 2011
Mödling (Austria), Sunday 27 November 2011
The Adventlauf attracts a crowd of around 800 runners to the very pretty old town of Mödling, located 16 kilometres to the south of the city centre of Vienna.
After the race, many runners use the opportunity to warm up with a cup of mulled wine on the Christmas market in the festively decorated historic town centre.
Entrants choose between the 'Hauptlauf lang' (ca. 10.5km) and the 'Hauptlauf kurz' (ca. 5.2km).
The 10.5km route consists of four loops through the Old Town and residential parts of Mödling. Participants in the 5.2km race run two laps.
In 2010, the winners of the 10.5K were elite road runner Tamás Kovács of Hungary (31:53) and Austria's marathon record holder Andrea Mayr (36:26).
