Spectacular view at Vertical Marathon finish line
The 2nd Wuhan Vertical Marathon 2018 (VM) was held at the Wuhan Millennium Tower on March 18. A total of 365runners finished the surprisingly challenging race. The fastest time to the top of the 42-story building was 6 minutes 13 seconds.
The VM took place in an office building overlooking both the Yangtze and the Han rivers next to Jianghan Customs House. The finish line was on the rooftop of the skyscraper. After climbing the approximately 1,400 steps to the top, participants took pictures with the Yangtze River and the city skyline in the background.
One partipant from Britain, Robert, a postdoctoral student at Wuhan University of Technology, said he attended the competition to enjoy the magnificent and beautiful Yangtze River and the city from above.
