The stair run to the top of the Eiffel tower is back in 2016!
100 runners from all over the globe have been choosen to do this running race. The ascent race of the 1,665 steps of the Eiffel Tower will be held for its second edition on March 17, 2016 with a live broadcast on Eurosport 2. A run against the clock. Unlike similar events that exist in the world and take place in closed stairwells, the stairs of the Eiffel Tower are completely open to the outside.
In 2015, for its first edition, the „Verticale de la Tour Eiffel®“ hosted 61 participants from a total of 16 different countries (Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Spain, USA, France, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Poland, UK, Czech Republic, and Slovakia) and representing all disciplines of running (road, trail, track, stairs race…).
I’m happy to be one of the 100 runners who can compete in this race.
