Despite Covid-19 induced restrictions nearly 300 athletes made it to Leicester for the 5th edition of LOROS Tower Run.
It is a stair sprint with the option of multiple tries.
Sarah Frost had an outstanding comeback after injury and an unlucky end of last season. Runner up 35,5 seconds behind (in a sprint race) was Kimberley Etherington-Bates with well known Sonja Shakespeare completing the podium.
Wai Ching Soh after Eiffel postponement and Vertical Rush cancellation finally could race on his European trip. His 1:24,8 meant a new course record beating Kacper Mrowiec from Poland by nearly 5 seconds. Laurence Ball finished 3rd followed by David Harris.
Within the winning margin separating Sarah Frost from her runner up the Top10 males were classed
With corona situation escalating in Europe and America right now very likely we will have no races in the next weeks
