Vienna City Marathon: Kirui goes for Kirui's course record!

Organisers of the Vienna City Marathon tend to look a bit towards Iceland in these days. But since there are now signs of a new volcano eruption there is some relief. "This year all the elite athletes are either already here or on their way and we expect everyone to be fit for the race," said Wolfgang Konrad, the Race Director of Austria's biggest and best quality road race. In 2010 the Vienna City Marathon had suffered from the no fly zone over Europe and one of those who did not make it to the Austrian capital was Eliud Kiptanui. The Kenyan then went on to smash the course record in Prague with 2:05:39.
