Suzy Walsham tower running

Suzy Walsham is one of the greatest female tower runners of all time.

Reigning tower running world champion, and a ten-time winner of the famous Empire State Building Run-Up, Walsham is the most consistent stair runner on the circuit, very rarely finishing in anything other than first place.

A former track and field star for the Australian national team, Walsham won four national titles (3 x 1,500m and 1 x 800m) and competed in both distances at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, before taking the sport of tower running by storm in 2007 by winning the Empire State Building Run-Up at her first attempt.

Heading into the 14th year of her stair running career, she remains practically unbeatable and shows absolutely no signs of slowing down. In March 2020 she will head to Paris in an attempt to secure a sixth straight win at La Verticale de la Tour Eiffel. She will also likely be heading to the Empire State Building (date TBC), to go for an incredible 11th title.

In the video below Walsham gives some insights into her training routine as well as what she eats to fuel her greatness.
