13th Wien Energie Half Marathon 2012
Vienna (Austria), Sunday 18 March 2012
Over 1100 runners took part in the last edition of the Wien Energie Halbmarathon in Austria's capital city Vienna.
In addition to the half marathon, the event offers a relay race for teams of three runners, a 6.8km loop for runners and nordic walkers, and children's races.
The half marathon consists of three laps around the "Obere Alte Donau" in the north-eastern part of Vienna, approximately six kilometres from the city centre.
Formerly, the "Old Danube" was a section of the River Danube but nowadays it's a lake separated from the river by a dam.
In 2011, the half marathon winners were Alfred Sungi (1:11:34) and Sylvia Buxhofer (1:23:28).
