Discovery Channel, for the second year, brings to us this different running challenge – the VERTICAL RUN 10K race eventon February 12. If you are one of the many who would like to be able to try something different with regards to running races, this event is definitely for you! The 10k race category of this event will have runners run a route for about 9.5 km, go up and down 21 floors of the Stamford Executive Residences building (19 floors plus parking levels), and then complete the 10km with a 500m run to the finish. If this isn’t a great challenge, I do not know what else is! :)
Read on for the details below to know the extent of challenge that will be in-store for participants.
And SURPRISE! Discovery Channel has given me TEN (yes, 10!) RACE KITS that I can raffle off for 10 lucky readers of this blog. Read the blog promo mechanics below. :)
