TAIPEI (TVBS News) — The Taipei 101 Run Up marathon, after a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic, returned on Saturday (Oct. 14), attracting international competitors from around the globe. 

Notable for its challenging ascent - 91 floors, which equals  2,046 steps, or 390 meters in vertical height - the event drew over 3,500 athletes worldwide with an additional 200 police contestants.

 

Malaysian participant Soh Wai Ching clinched the men's championship with a race time of 11 minutes 40.06 seconds, while the fastest Taiwanese competitor, Lo Ching-chun, followed close behind with 12 minutes 38.31 seconds. 

In the women's group, the first place honors went to Chao Jui-chuan, who completed her run in 15 minutes 51.34 seconds.

Chang Hsueh-shun, Chairman of Taipei 101, shared that this year's marathon theme, "WE ARE WELL," stresses health and sustainability. 
 

Since its inauguration in 2005, the marathon has been held 16 times, making it one of the highest and most challenging tower-running events globally.

The record for the fastest times still stands with Australia's Paul Crake (10 minutes 29.32 seconds in 2005) for the men's and Austria's Andrea Mayr (12 minutes 38.85 seconds) for the women's group.
