Kerry Sports Manila Vertical Run 2018 is set to kick off on July 8 at the Shangri-La Hotel in BGC, Taguig. Manila is one of the legs of the 3rd World Vertical Circuit which also has races in cities such as Beijing, Hong Kong, London, New York, Osaka, Seoul, Shanghai and Paris.
The Manila leg is set to take place in one of the tallest buildings in the country. International and local runners are all set to climb 59 floors, make their way up to 250 meters above ground and conquer 1,353 steps of stairs.
EastWest Bank is also joining the fray as the race’s official titular sponsor.

Governed by the International Skyrunning Federation, the Vertical World Circuit uses a point system that bases the participants ranking on each leg of the circuit. These points are then tallied at the end of the nine global legs to determine the Vertical World Circuit Champion.
Last year’s Elite category winners, Piotr Lobodzinski from Poland and Suzy Walsham from Australia are also participating in the Manila leg to defend their titles as Kerry Sports Manila Vertical Run champions. Lobodzinski previously raced to the top of the Shangri-La building in 6 minutes and 19 seconds, while Walsham reached the top in 7 minutes and 39 seconds.
