With more than 14,000 finishers last year, the Vienna Night Run is one of Central Europe's largest charity running events.

Six euros of each entry fee go to the charity Light for the World which uses the money to carry out cataract eye operations in Africa.

The route is a 5km loop around Vienna's city centre.

Starting at the magnificent Hofburg (Court Palace), the route follows the imperial Ringstraße, which is home to many of Vienna's grandest buildings, including the Austrian Parliament, the State Opera, and the Burgtheater.

In 2013, the fastest finishers were Valentin Pfeil (14:43) and Annabelle-Mary Konczer (17:13).
