Running my first international marathon in vienna was a massive experience. It was a big turn out with over 40 thousand plus runners. It was not one of my favourite marathons as found it hard not being able to run from the start due to all the runners, with the half and relay runners all starting at the same time. It was very congested to say the least. It was a flat course with the course running in and out of the city with some beautiful buildings on route. All I can say is I finished it thank christ! not one I would do again. The best bit was my snickers bar at the finish! .
