Webster team at Vienna Night Run

Once again a team of Webster Vienna students, staff and faculty braved the cool autumn evening to participate in the Vienna Night Run along with 20,000 other running enthusiasts.

Not only was it fun and healthy, but part of each racer's fee went to the charity Licht fuer die Welt to help seeing-impaired children in developing countries.

Graduate student Juan Castillo had the best time for the Webster Vienna men, with an incredible 15:44, good for 5th place among all runners! "I never thought I'd set a personal record today. I'm in pretty good shape right now, but I expected to run maybe 16:20," said the former NCAA Divison I middle-distance runner. Castillo achieved the feat after running 10km the morning of race day - obviously just a warm-up for him!

For the second year in a row, grad student Allison Gutscher had the best Webster women's time with 22:19. Congrats to all!
