Come spring Vienna is the perfect place for a runner to be. Particularly this spring. The Vienna City Marathon celebrates its 30th anniversary on 14 April 2013 and will inspire an expected field of 40,000 runners from about 110 nations. No less a man than running legend Haile Gebrselassie, who ran the race in 2011 and 2012, says: “Don’t miss this chance! The course is fast. The wonderful public buildings are a delight.
