Leibnitz (Austria), Saturday 15 July 2017
Held yearly on a Saturday night in July, the Römerlauf pays tribute to the Romans who founded the city of Flavia Solva which was situated near the modern town of Leibnitz in Austria's state of Styria.
Over 2,000 runners and walkers, some dressed up as Romans, took part in the event last year.
