Ultra Runners do the Rundumadum








The Rundumadum Trail Race is a 130 km challenge following a marked route around the Vienna boundary. Yesterday I decided to play the role of spectator at a couple of locations during the early to middle part of the race and take some photos. The weather played it's part too. All the athletes I waved to or spoke to were having a seriously good time. Whether this was still the case several hours later during the nighttime section through the Lobau National Park and over the Bisamberg I cannot say, for while they were running under head torches I was having food and talk with a couple of friends in a local Ethiopian Restaurant. 

Next year, if I am fit, I may give the Rundumadum a go. There is, I am happy to say, an alternative route available for us 'oldies'; and it's a mere sprint. 65 kms.

The 'mere sprint' sounds quite out of my league but I will be cheering for you!
