Towerrunning 160
BrnoBratislava – September 8

Following the successful staging of the 2017 Towerrunning 160 race ,a similar race format will again apply for this year’s Towerrunning 160 race. Unique to the Towerrunning Tour calendar, the event will see athletes compete this time in two races in two different countries and while the height of the towers favour the shorter distance specialists, backing up to travel and race day after day adds a certain challenge and complexity to the competition.

Due to unfinished construction we have to skip the Donauturm race in Vienna this year. First race will be in Czech republic on Saturday 8th September in the morning up the 700 steps of Brno’s AZ Tower, the country’s tallest building; while the final thrilling race on Saturday 8th September afternoon will be up the challenging 430 steps of UFO Tower in Bratislava, Slovakia. This means the race will be decided on Saturday with two races!!! Runners will score points at each event, with the overall highest point scorers vying for a share of the 2 000 Euro prize pool. Prize money will be distributed to male and female winners as follows:

1st – EUR 500 2nd – EUR 300 3rd – EUR 200

Race organizers and TWA are pleased to offer 12 travel packages comprising 100 Euro travel reimbursement, 2 nights’ accommodation with breakfast, transport between races, and free race entry ( not eligible for Austrian, Czech and Slovak athletes ).
