Vienna City Marathon Recap

Our Endurance Group put on an excellent showing at the Vienna Half-Marathon this weekend. We had some excellent results, some personal bests and most importantly everyone had a great time.

Representing the gym we had an awesome group of runners with Ralph Gloor, Birgit Erdtner, her boyfriend Michael, Max Staritz, Bettina Carigiet, Ralph Schmitz, Sasha Savic and Coach Stephen all taking part with support from Louise Masterson and Kristina Hakulinen who were sadly not able to run but were a key part of the trip and added to the great atmosphere. Also supporting we had Bettina's husband, Ralph's girlfriend Simi, Coach Roberta and Head Baby Coach Logan.

Joining them we had several guests who were welcome additions not only race day but during our city tour and dinners. Peter, Nadine and Lucia made great additions and we were very glad to have them with us.

Race day itself was a little warmer than expected and a little windier but our runners were able to over come this and enjoy the moment amid the more than 43,000 people who took part in the different events. All of our runners did the half marathon, in which over 13,500 people took part.

As for our host, Max was the best, showing us great sights around the city, taking us to great places to eat and of course showing off Austrian beer (only after the run of course!). We could not have asked for more.
