Changjiang Weekly - - CONTENTS -

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.
