8th Wine Route Race

This 10k road race travels through a small wine-growing region near Austria's capital Vienna.

The start is in the village of Pfaffstätten, located on the edge of the spa town of Baden, about 25 kilometres south of Vienna's city centre.

The finish line is at the public swimming pool in Mödling, a picturesque small old town at the foot of the wooded Wienerwald hills, just 15 kilometres from Vienna.

The race follows an undulating route through vineyards and fields. The difference between the lowest and the highest point on the course is approximately 100 metres.

After about 7.5 kilometres participants reach the highest point, which is at the Eichkogel, a small hill and designated nature reserve with some rare plants. From there, it's just downhill to the finish.

In 2009, the winners were Daniel Haußner of Germany (34:23) and Sylvia Buxhofer from Vienna (43:04).
