Vienna Night Run
Once again this year, our Webster Vienna students and faculty members participated in the Vienna Night Run, a 5 km run around Vienna´s well known Ringstrasse. Around 20 runners participated, part of their fees going to the “Licht für die Welt” charity. The top male runner was student Jonah Munzer, while the top female was student Petya Dimova.
Some of our students came to cheer on their colleagues and reported on the experience (some runners and reporters participated as part of the First Year Seminar course, which features a Vienna at Night theme).
Here are some of their impressions:
"The participants seemed very eager, optimistic and enthusiastic, nonetheless some of freshman seemed a bit nervous. The weather conditions were rather nice for a great evening run.The Atmosphere was lively with multiple stands for beverages and food. As the start approached tension grew and nerves started to thin out. At 20:30 The Webster participants started their run. Curiously and full of excitement we waited for them at the finish line. After just 20 minutes the first Webster runners started to arrive, exhausted but happy they finished the race. We talked to a few of the runners, Julian (19) told us that the first km was probably the most difficult one, but after that it was like a walk in the park, and he will definitely take part again next year. Overall the runners felt a sense of accomplishment after they finished the race and it was an experience that the students that took part enjoyed."
