    This sound like fun. The only thing I have against it, is that one is prone to skip a step by mistake or make a mistake by not running correctly up the stairs and can cause injury by falling onto the stairs. But I guess any sport is like this.

    This looks extremely good and looks like the health and fitness benefits would be great. Although there is the chance of injury but you find that with all exercise if not carried out correctly

    I stumbled across this website while doing a search for info on whether there would be a stairclimb up Taipei 101 in 2011. I’ve gone up the stairs of Taipei 101 thrice: two times for charity (2006 Taipei 101 International Climbathon, held on May 21, 2006; and the 2007 Taipei 101 International Climbathon, held on May 5, 2007) and once for a race (The 2010 Run up Taipei 101, held on May 30, 2010). I’ve also done the Mitsukoshi Building Stairclimb (46 floors) multiple times, which is in the 2nd tallest building in Taipei. Stair racing is definitely a challenge & I find it a lot more interesting than just doing regular out door races.

    @blackhuff: I think you’re more likely to twist your ankle running on uneven ground in a cross country race as opposed to slipping on stairs, as almost all the stair climbers will use the railing for support.
