Vienna City Marathon Winter Running Series 2012 - 2nd Run
Vienna (Austria), Sunday 19 February 2012
The popular VCM Winterlaufserie offers three road running events in the Prater park in Vienna - one in January, one in February, and one in March.
All races are held on the same 7km-loop course, which is flat and fast, traffic-free and AIMS-certified.
Runners choose between three distances: 7km, 14km, and a 21.1km half marathon.
They can decide during the race if they want to finish after one lap, after two laps, or after three laps (the third lap is slightly longer than the first two laps).
Almost 700 runners took part in the second event of the 2011 series. The half marathon winners were Marius Bock of Austria (1:11:06) and Csilla Adorján of Hungary (1:33:09).
