An outstanding event at the Eiffel Tower March 20, 2015!
For the first time in 120 years the Eiffel Tower will host a vertical race in which 60 athletes will ascend the 1,665 steps of the iconic landmark. The open architecture of the Eiffel Tower provides an uncommonly excellent view of the event, unlike most vertical races that take place in enclosed stairwells.
La Verticale de la Tour Eiffel, will be dedicated to climbing the monument: a 279 meter race from the ground floor to the top of the Eiffel Tower, with 1665 steps to climb!
This event will be held on Friday March 20th 2015 at 8:30pm in the evening.
For the first running of this unique competition, the number of participants is limited. Only 60 experienced athletes will be allowed to climb the stairs of the three levels of the famous landmark, which has not happened for over 100 years!
If you are in Paris for spring break, don’t miss this exciting event.
