What’s a Tower Run?

Tower running is a stair climbing sport. It involves running up the internal staircases of buildings. It is a not a conventional sport. There are no cheering crowds; races are in enclosed concrete stairwells, but it is a supreme test of the competitors’ fitness. In 2013-14, more than 150,000 men and women participated in over 225 Tower Running races worldwide, in 33 countries. 

Races are backed by top sponsors – the Empire State Building (sponsored by India's own TCS), Tower 42 (London, sponsored by Fujitsu), Willis Tower (Chicago, sponsored by Sears), CN Tower (Toronto, sponsored by Enbridge Inc), Eureka Tower (Melbourne, sponsored by OsteoEze), Swissotel (Singapore, sponsored by Soleus watches, Mizuno apparel and Nestle Milo), Taipei 101 (Taiwan, sponsored by Standard Chartered Bank), Menara Tower (Penang, Malaysia, sponsored by Penang Global Tourism), Landmark 72 (Hanoi, Vietnam, sponsored by Calidas Royal Residence), International Commerce Centre (Hong Kong, sponsored by Sun Hung Kai Properties) and China World Summit Wing Hotel (Beijing, sponsored by Shangri-La Hotel and Emirates), World Trade Centre, Mumbai (sponsored by Tatas) – and offer big prize money. 

In Mumbai, the Tata Tower Run is held in the iconic World Trade Center at Cuffe Parade. Participants race up the first 30 floors of the 36-floor tower that dominates this elite locality in South Mumbai. 

The Linc Tower Run is different. In Goa, the maximum number of floors in a building allowed under zoning laws is seven. That is why this event is across five buildings, aggregating a total of 35 floors. In tall buildings, the race ends on the top floor. The Linc Tower Run requires climbing down the stairs as well. In the number of steps, it is the longest tower running race in India and on par with top Tower Runs worldwide. 

The world’s longest tower run is the Niesen Treppenlauf; 11,674 steps up a staircase next to a funicular railway to the top of Mount Niesen, Switzerland. 

More than 160 races held in 25 countries are evaluated each year for the Tower Running World Cup, by the Towerrunning World Association (TWA), based in Austria. Goa is one of them.

The event is supported by the Towerrunning World Association (TWA).
