  Hi !

    Look at http://www.vienna-marathon.com !

 Ive done VCM every year since 84 and will be there this year too. There
are
 aid stations every 5k with water/iso/mineral to drink and
bananas/oranges/cakes
 to eat. The course is flat but you must keep in mind, if on race day
there is the
 typical west wind then the first 4k are against the wind in the Wiental
and after the
 turning point you run with the wind til 9k. I know many people who did
this
 wind-aided section too fast ! Also the last 5k are slightly uphill, not
much in
 elevation difference, but you feel it !
