Information from A to Z
Confirmation: What is my start number and how do I find this out?
All participants who have registered online for the 26th Austrian Women's Run receive a confirmation of their registration by e-mail, ca. 14 days before the run; this states their personal start number, with all details required for collecting this number and for the weekend of the event.
Course and terrain: Where is the start located and what route does the run take?
Once you have arrived at the "Women's Run" village, you cross Pierre-de-Coubertin-Platz and go to the "Prater Hauptallee". The start is located on the "Prater Hauptallee" in Vienna's 2nd Bezirk (district), circa 1 km from the crossing where the Stadionallee meets the Prater Hauptallee in the direction of the Lusthaus. Here you will find the exact location and the path that the route takes >>
TAKE NOTE For organisational reasons, access to the start blocks is on both sides, on an alternating basis. For example, in running direction A - from the left, running direction B - from the right, C - from the left, D - from the right, ...for this purpose, see also the plan of the site!
Please note that it is NOT possible to cross the finishing section of the running course, at Olympiaplatz (the square located at the exit from the U-Bahn metro station "Stadion = "stadium” on U2 line) on Sunday 3 June.
Race number pick up: When and where do I get my start number?
The start number, the time-measurement / recording chip (if you do not have your own), the starting pack with lots of presents, as well as the "Women's Run" T-shirts, are collected at the Women's Run weekend:
Saturday 25 May: 9.30 a.m. to 7.00 p.m.
Sunday 26 May: 7.30 a.m. to 9.00 a.m.
Where: in the "Women's Run" village at Pierre-de-Coubertin-Platz in Vienna's 2nd district - ideally reachable with the U-Bahn metro line U2; the station is "Stadion" (= Stadium). The village is located next to the Ernst Happel Stadium.
A time keeping + an entry of the result in the individual and team rating is only possible if you are wearing a ChampionChip during the run!
>> Without a chip - no measurement of your time!
>> Without a time measurement - no rating of individual or team performance!
How do I get my chip?:
You can either buy a running chip (this is then usable worldwide - EUR 33), for example in the Women's-Run Design, or hire one.
Hired chip: You pay for this at the area for collecting start numbers and time-measurement /recording chips (2 and 3 June) for a fee of EUR 10, receiving EUR 7 back when the chip is returned after the run - i.e. you pay only EUR 3 as a hire fee!
How do I put the chip in place correctly?
Fix the ChampionChip in the laces of your running shoes - to do this you only need to open the upper part of the shoelace, "thread-in" the chip by means of the shoelace and then simply close the shoelaces again "as normal”.
Important: taking the chip with you in your trouser pocket etc. does NOT activate the time measurement function.
Here you get more information about the running chip>>
Women's Run Village: Where is it located and how do I get there?
On the weekend of the run, the Women's Run Village is the attraction for all participants! This is the location where the start numbers and T-shirts are given out, and for the company exhibition and the "Women's Run" stage.
The Women's Run village is located at Pierre-de-Coubertin-Platz in 1020 Vienna, between the Ernst Happel Stadium and the Prater Hauptallee (= Prater main avenue).
The best suggestion is that you use public transport!
Taking the U-Bahn (metro) line U2, you get to the "Women's Run" village quickly and comfortably: take the U2 line to the station STADION ( = STADIUM) and then walk circa 200m via the Olympiaplatz directly onto the site of the event.
Alternatively you can also take the Straßenbahn line 1 / (S-Bahn train line) to the terminus station "Prater Hauptallee" and then walk circa 1 km onto the site of the event (please note: Line 1 is operating briefly on 26 May because of the Women's Run; it ends at the station "Hintere Zollamtstraße"!)
