Gotta be quick!
In 2011, the German city of Hannover launched a speed race around its artificial lake Maschsee, which is a popular leisure facility for boaters, cyclists, windsurfers, swimmers and walkers. It has a relatively short 5.8 km course and so offers an interesting alternative to the endurance events and 10Ks. There are prizes for the top three finishers. In its first year, the race was won with a time of 18 minutes and 55 seconds!
