I just found out that the tallest building in the world, Taipei 101, will be having a stair run on 11/20. That's far too close to begin training, but I'm wondering if anyone has advice/ideas/and or experience with this sorta thing (firefighters?!)
Last year I ran up a 46 storey building in 10:46.

Damn, that sounds like fun. I want to do that, but there's not any tall buildings in the suburbs. :sad: I'd definitely say it is mostly practice for that type of endurance that you will need.. just like long distance running.

I'm going to get started soon for next year. The 46-storey one last year was a real bag-drive.

Holy carp I forgot about that! Sorry, I should've searched first.
The thing is this race up the tallest building is now 'official'...back then I thought I was being original.
