Vienna (Austria), Sunday 21 September 2014
The Babenbergerlauf gives runners the opportunity to test their strength and stamina on one of the fastest road running courses that you can find in Europe.
The route is a pancake-flat, traffic-free and AIMS-certified 5km loop through the Prater, the largest public park in Vienna, and home to the famous Ferris wheel.
Starting and finishing on the Prater Hauptallee avenue (near the Ernst-Happel-Stadion, Austria's biggest stadium), participants run either one lap (5km), two laps (10km), three laps (15km), or four laps and a bit (21.1km half marathon).
Each lap includes one turning point on the Prater Hauptallee.
Around 250 runners took part in the Babenbergerlauf last year.
