How is the race conducted?
Each competitor is individually timed using electronic systems. The one that takes the least time for all five buildings wins.

How is the timing done?
Each competitor is issued with a wrist band that contains a timing chip. There are timing volunteers with timing devices at the start and finish. Competitors start individually with a gap of 5 to 10 seconds between competitors. This is done so as not to crowd the staircase. Each competitor's timing is electronically recorded at the start and finish. Bib numbers are noted at the top of each building to ensure that each competitor has completed the entire course. 

What about the Team Event?
For the Team Event, each competitor has to climb only one building. The timing chip is mounted on a baton that has to be handed from one team member to the next. The baton with timing chip is electronically timed at the start and finish. Bib numbers are noted at the top of each building to ensure that each team has completed the entire course. 

What about the Vertical Sprint?
For the Vertical Sprint, competitors have to climb only one building. Timing is done exactly as for the individual event (above).
