Eureka Climb presented by OsteoEze – The Joint Care Specialist – is Australia’s biggest vertical race held at one of the world’s tallest residential buildings, Eureka Tower in Southbank, Melbourne.
Participants ascend 1642 steps to level 88’s observation deck known as Eureka Skydeck (the highest observation deck in the Southern Hemisphere). Eureka Climb is in the top 20 (amount of stairs) of stair climbs in the world.
Mark Bourne and Alice McNamara have been the male and female winners of the Eureka Climb for the 4th year in a row but times are a little slower than in 2013. The winners received a return trip each to the WFGT Towerrunning Challenge 2014 which will take place on January 24, 2015 at Vienna’s Danube Tower. Because Mark had already won this trip in his win in the Sydney Tower race, second placed Darren Wilson was awarded this prize from the Eureka event.
