Sims held off a strong push from stair running newcomer Alex James “Mr Boombastic” Ward to secure victory in a time of 4.22, with his Surrey-based rival just ten seconds behind in 4.32. Third place was taken by visiting Slovakian track and field athlete Patrik “The Nitra Nitro” Schneidgen aka “Mr Guinness” who finished in 4.54. The 21 year old, 800m specialist secured an impressive podium spot in what was only his third competitive stair race.

Attention now turns to the final race of the UK Championship Series, taking place next month on 13th December at the Heron Tower. The race will see the much-awaited return of Rich “Beyond Human” Sirrs and the rest of the OPSRC, and will feature one of the most competitive national fields ever for a UK stair race.

You can still sign up to take part in the race, which is all in aid of Action on Hearing Loss, by visiting their website here.
