21st Kahlenberg Run 2010
Vienna (Austria), Sunday 10 October 2010
This hill running event, staged on the northern edge of Austria's capital city Vienna, features a moderate elevation gain of approximately 400 metres.
Competitors run 8.6 kilometres along roads and trails. The route includes a long mild downhill section.
The start is in Kahlenbergerdorf, a village on the right bank of the River Danube, surrounded by woods and vineyards. The village is situated 8 kilometres to the north of Vienna's city centre, but it's still within the city limits.
The route runs up the wooded hills of the Wienerwald. The finish line is at the transmission tower on the Kahlenberg (484m), a popular day-tripping destination as it offers fine views of the Danube and the city in the distance.
In 2009, the winners were Tomasz Sommer (38:24) and Teresa Weisz (46:56).
