Witness world-class competition at its peak as more than 2,200 participants blaze up 1,336 steps over 73 storeys in the shortest time possible. Soaring at a height of 226 metres as one of Southeast Asia’s tallest hotel, Swissôtel The Stamford has been the site for Asia’s pioneer and most challenging Vertical Marathon since its inauguration in 1987.
The Swissôtel Vertical Marathon is also one of the races selected for the Towerrunning Tour 2016 which unites some of the world’s most iconic skyscraper races in the world, including the US Bank Tower in Los Angeles, California, Sydney Tower in Australia and Sky Tower in Auckland, New Zealand. In January 2015, the Swissôtel Vertical Marathon was mentioned by CNN as the most challenging race among 11 of the world’s coolest themed runs.
