| Run Up on the TAIPEI 101



For many, walking to the bus station is exhausting already; others participate in Cross- and Mountain runs. Stair runs represent another step-up.

One of the most famous stair runs is organised in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan. The participants have been sprinting up the Taipei 101 for several years there. It's the highest tower in the city and the seventh highest in the world. Circulatory system and muscles are extremely strained; much more than in the case for other runs. However, the more enjoyed is the view that's been acquired so hard.

Not correlating to the stair runs, but as if specifically tailored to, Martin Luther King Jr. spoke this, for stair runners motivating, sentence: „You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

Good luck and a lot of fun to all the participants!
