Business Centre Bohemia, a modern office building in Pilsen, locally known as the “skyscraper”, will host the great Run-up 2012 race on Sunday 17th June 2012.
This event, that has been held in the Czech Republic for several years now, is also organized in many other countries (e.g. Germany, France, Canada and of course the USA where the most famous race of this type takes places every year in the Empire State Building in New York City).
The principle is very simple: The participants must run up the stairs in one of the tallest buildings in the Czech Republic and reach the top of the tower in the shortest possible time. After the first round, the 40 fastest (22 men and 8 women) in the Elite race qualify for the finals. The final is held on the same day and the fastest runner wins the grand prize.
The runners will be able to choose between the Elite Run-Up race (race to the top of the tower with the chance to qualify for the finals and the CR Championship in running up stairs) and the Open Run-Up (race to the middle of the tower). In total, 8 men and 4 women will qualify from the races held in the individual cities for the CR Championship.
The race is organized by the ChrisFromParis Organisation in 7 Czech Republic cities.
