  • Now let’s see ’em race up the tower on pogo sticks!:-D

    Seriously, there wasn’t a fat person in the bunch. As a portly fellow myself, I don’t know whether I could climb up to the SECOND FLOOR of my local Sears store in under 15 minutes.

    Perhaps I should start giving the elevators and escalators a break, and take up stair-climbing.:-)

  • At 8:26 I started to get emotional. I know so many elderly that are bed ridden and these men are accomplishing the impossible at their age. God Bless You

  • Some look like they shouldn’t be there at all. Massive amount of training but ‘A man gotta know his limitations’ Clint Eastwood

  • Looks like a stroke or heart attack waiting to happen, yuck!! Lol! Just speaking for my old self, I’d have to walk slowly up that.

  • just finished Presidential is Towers, for my tenth time, and Sears Tower, what 7 times….both towers each year. want to meet you guys one time……

  • I’ll tell you who would do REALLY well on this course. Cyclist. I’m not bragging but uphill was my favorite part of any race or tour and as a result my legs were well acclimated to uphills be it running or cycling. I SUCKED at straight aways running as my legs were too chunky. Lol. But uphill I caught a lot of my competition then. I would have ate this hill alive (with the right shoes) as it damn near has the same cadence as cycling.
    It would really be interesting to have some of the world best uphill cyclist run up this. Tour de france type. A nod to seasoned soccer/rugby players too. They have pretty massive legs. (Some of them).

  • Yesterday we did a stair climb race at work, it’s a challenge they do annually. We ran up 25 floors, I finished it in 6 minutes and 40 seconds. The first place here ran up 103, 4 times what I did in just double the time, wow

  • 10x more entertaining if the last part is covered with slippery slime and whoever slides down must try take out as many competitors as possible.

  • Hi Tim
    Just one question. Running a tower block without the help of the bars and no rest would that  be different from what i’m seeing in this video.  

  • This competition is for average athletes to test themselves against other average athletes. There are no Olympic level sprinters running in this competition.

  • Wow what an amazing accomplishment! Most I’ve climbed straight up is 42 flights in Tampa, today I climbed 47 in repeats of 16, 15,8 & 8 for training to climb 25 November 3rd. Wish me luck!

  • It funny that red bull sponsors so many extreme sports events, but none of the athletes are likely to be drinking a red bull at any point during one of those competitions.

  • this video is so inspirational. i would consider myself a very athletic person and this video moved me so much. congratulations to all the people that made it and keep up the good work.

  • @2012TheAndromeda the observation deck is on floor 103that’s where the race ends. It’s either 108 or 110 floors/stories depending on who is counting, lol.

  • i cant wait to down providence “peak the plaza” stairclimb on feb 23, 2013. its a charity event for american lung association. i have a little vid with a view of it on my channel check it out.

  • great video, impressive, great editing, fabulous, you are a teacher of video Tim, thanks for including me.
    thanks, thank you very much TIM VAN ORDEN

  • I’m from Atlanta, Georgia! It’s actually pretty easy eating raw in Atlanta when it comes to getting produce. Community wise a lot of people just don’t get it yet. They will though eventually! We even have a raw food restaurant now.

  • Hello,

    My name is Tasha, I am working with Off the Fence Productions to produce a TV series for international distribution featuring 10 ‘Great Inventions’, one of the episodes is on elevators. We talk about the empire state building and its annual run-up as well as its elevators in the episode.

    I’d like to ask if you’d be willing to share the footage from this video with us for use in the episode in exchange for a credit please?

    The series has been commissioned by ZDF, Germany’s national broadcaster, and they will distribute to cable networks like Servus TV, History Germany, RMC Découverte, Planéte, Discovery Europe, Fox Australia, plus various video on demand platforms internationally.

    We are currently editing the episode and so a quick response would be much appreciated. We ideally need the original high res footage without embedded graphics/watermarks within a day or two.

    Please let me know if you have any questions and please reply to [email protected]

    Kind regards,
