Bisamberg Hill Race

This 12 kms hill race on the edge of Vienna begins with a lap of the running track at Strebersdorf before following a cobbled lane to the foot of the first trail climb of the hill. There follows a short run over the grassy summit and then a long descent along a forest path followed by a second climb through woodland and then a descent along another cobbled lane and over several fields to return to the stadium and a final lap of the track to the finishing banner.  It feels a bit like an early season English Fell Race. There is also a 9 kms race which involves just one hill climb and also a Nordic Walking event taking place at the same time. There was no M65 class, and I had to run against some young M60's!

Here's my result:
