Announcement
Towerrunning 80 – WFGT Towerrunning Challenge – TowerrunningUSA 200
SkyRise Chicago – Willis Tower – November 3, 2019

One of the tallest indoor stair climbs in the world will be held up the soaring Willis Tower in Chicago on Sunday, November 3, 2019. SkyRise Chicago, a Towerrunning 80/TowerrunningUSA 200 race and WFGT Towerrunning Challenge event will see athletes climb 2,115+ stairs and 1,353+ ft to finish at SkyDeck Chicago on the 103rd floor. Maybe like in the last two years due to ongoing construction there may be two bonus floors ! The protective layer cracking on the glass balcony in June will not discourage us from climbing 🙂 The event is expected to attract more than 3,000 participants and raise more than $USD 1 million for the Shirley Ryan Ability Lab.

SkyRise Chicago is pleased to announce free registration to 40 elite athletes as follows: 5 international slots for TWA-registered athletes with a Top 30 ranking according to the June 2019 TWA rankings; a further 30 slots (15 male and 15 female) to top ranked TWA-registered USA athletes according to Towerrunning USA rankings at the end of the application period; and a further 5 slots to other TWA-registered competitive athletes based on recent performance. Interested athletes can apply until August 25th, 2019 at 10pm CET.
International slots: On website or by emailing president@towerrunning.com and sport@towerrunning.com.
