One of Manila’s tallest buildings, Shangri-La at the Fort, will once again host the city’s only international stair climbing race – the Kerry Sports Manila Vertical Run!
On July 9, runners will start at the hotel’s lobby and ascend 58 floors to the penthouse level. They will face the challenge of running up over 1,300 steps to a height of 223 meters. Stair climbing, first known as “vertical races” in the 1970s, is now a global sport with stair climbing clubs hailing from the US, Canada, Europe and Asia, as well as professional athletes who train year-round to be the first to reach the top of the world’s tallest buildings.
