On your marks, get set, go! Tomorrow the Erste Bank Vienna Night Run invites you to explore the Wiener Ring on an ongoing basis – and this is the tenth time this year.

The atmosphere of the run could not be more magnificent. Past some of the most beautiful sights and most memorable buildings in Vienna, the approximately 5 km long route leads via the Vienna Ring Road. The event starts at the university ring shortly after the Rathausplatz. From there you continue: past the Ringturm to Urania, along the city park, the Staatsoper and finally to the finish line in front of the Parliament. In this way, sightseeing and sports can be combined perfectly.

This also fits the philosophy of the event. This is not the hunt for minutes and seconds, but the fun of sports in the foreground. And all this is for a good cause. Within nine years more than 700,000 € donated funds have been collected in favor of the “Light for the World” campaign – thousands of people in Africa have already been given back the light of day.

For those who have now come to the taste, there is still the opportunity to register themselves in the course of the opening number issue in the Hofburg until 7 pm.

We wish all the stars a lot of success!
