Vienna, with its broad, colorful activity offers and its cultural background, is always worth a visit. At today’s Millennium Towerrun, in one of the highest building in Austria, I could improve my personal best time for 20 seconds and came in in 2nd place with 4:25 min at the Light Version. The staircase of this tower with its 48 floors and its smaller step depth, has a higher pitch than many other buildings. At this staircase run there are always two race variants: The Light Version, where you have the pleasure to run up one time to the viewing platform and the Extreme Version, which means enjoying the view 3 times in a row. In the last variant, the times are added and you will be grouped according to your performance after each round. Top runners from Europe were at the start. Despite my previous 2-3 week blackout due to illness, I decided to compete in both races, which made the whole thing a little bit more challenging. Although I had a 12 minute recovery period till the start of the Extreme Version, I was not recovered at race start, so I had to accept high losses in my performance. I was not fully recuperated from the previous weeks. The day was ended with a Towerrunning World Association (TWA) meeting and after-race-cake.
