The 2nd ECSS Bengt Saltin Run took place in Vienna, Austria on 8th July 2016. The run is organised in the memory of ECSS Founding member Prof. Bengt Saltin, who was the spiritual father of the European College of Sport Science.

At 7:00 am on Friday morning at the ECSS Vienna 2016 congress 166 runners turned up to the starting line. Some of the runners took the run as a nice morning exercise whilst the other sprinted of in the start to head for the win.
