Webster in Vienna Marathon
Congratulations to the Webster students and faculty who successfully completed the 2014 Vienna Marathon!
For decades, Vienna has been hosting its City Marathon. This year, more than 40,000 people participated, a new record.
Runners signed up to participate in the full 42 kilometer marathon or the shorter, half marathon and relay races. Even those who chose not to run still enjoyed themselves by cheering on friends and family, while taking part in a huge and festive event. To the runners' advantage, the weather turned out to be perfect conditions; not too warm and not too windy.
This year, for the first time, Webster Vienna was present with four relay teams. Depending on their stamina and training, the team members could choose to run between 16.1, 5.7, 9.1 and 11.3 kilometers.
All of our runners did a great job! Afterwards, everyone celebrated at Café Landtmann, a few hundred meters past the finish line. The afternoon ended with a toast to an even more successful Vienna City Marathon 2015.
