Vertical running: Elite athletes race up skyscrapers in a 484 meter tall tower
Do you ever run 2,120 steps non-stop in the tallest building in Hong Kong ?
At 118 stories, the tower is the tallest building in Hong Kong, and among the world’s tallest structures. The run took them to the 100th of the ICC’s 118 floors in 2,120 painful steps. Wilson, a wiry 40-year-old from Adelaide, Australia, finished first in just under 12 minutes, pumping the air as he crossed the finish line before slumping to the floor for a well-deserved rest.
Suzy Walsham and Darren Wilson are among a growing number of people who have embraced “vertical running” as a sport.
