Webster Vienna participants in the Vienna marathon show off this year’s shirt, which nods to Webster University’s centennial: “In it for the long run 1915-2015.”

Ten Webster Vienna students, staff, faculty and alumni ran in the marathon, while more served as event organizers, volunteers and paramedic aids.

The Webster Vienna community once again came together to participate in the Vienna City Marathon, one of the city’s most exciting events.

Ten students, staff, faculty and alumni of Webster University’s Vienna campus were among the more than 44,000 runners who took part this year. Several others had to drop out due to illness or injury.

All of the Webster Vienna runners participated in the half marathon this year, a grueling but rewarding 21km challenge.

“It was a great feeling of accomplishment when I crossed the line,” said undergraduate student Arbana Gjoni at Cafe Landtmann, where some runners met up afterwards to share. The best time of the day for Webster went to graduate student Allison Kincaid, who finished in an impressive 1 hour and 46 minutes.

Aside from the runners, Webster students and alumni also volunteered with the event organizers, and one student, Ilian Scheutz, served that day with the Red Cross paramedic team.

Professor Andrew Horsfield got in on the act by coming up with the catchy phrase the team sported on the backs of their shirts, in honor of Webster University’s centennial: “In it for the long run 1915-2015.”
