7th Vogau 12hour Race 2010
The small village of Vogau in the far south of Austria comes to life each year in May when hundreds of asphalt aficionados pound its streets for a whole day.
The event offers a 6hour and a 12hour ultra marathon, as well as 12hour relay races for teams of 2-4 runners and teams of 5-20 runners.
The start of the 12hour races is at 8am. The 6hour runners join the field at 2pm.
The course is 1829.62 metres long, traffic-free, flat and certified by AIMS.
Along the route there will be a disc jockey and a feed station that provides all sorts of food and drinks (including two varieties of beer).
In 2009, the event saw more than 700 participants but as most of them were relay runners there were never more than 186 on the course at the same time. The winners of the 12hour race were Gerhard Eggenreich (135.4km) and Claudia Mauerhofer (105.3km).
