Vertical running is stair climbing at speed, up some of the world’s tallest business and residential towers. Forget the lift. This a challenge that you can literally take step-by-step to achieve your goal.

Now that Ho Chi Minh City is home to the world’s 14th tallest tower – Landmark 81 – and has been newly added by the International Skyrunning Federation to the Vertical World Circuit for the very first time, you, as an amateur athlete, have the opportunity to Race To The Summit.

Amateur runners have the option to enter the half-distance climb of 48-floors, or take on the full-distance climb of 81-floors right to the very top of our great city.

And what’s up there? A sense of accomplishment and that feeling that you’re on top of the world!

Dedicating yourself to the process and participating in regular, daily training and nutrition will lead you to your goal! As you train, you’ll overcome your fitness obstacles and can use training time to explore new places. On race day expect to enjoy an awards presentation with Elite Runners and new friends, and revel in your accomplishment from the top floor of the tallest building in Vietnam: think of that amazing selfie!
