Suzy Walsham tower running

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

Reigning tower running world champion, and a nine-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.

Coming into the 12th year of her stair running career, she remains practically unbeatable and shows absolutely no signs of slowing down. In March 2019 she will head to Paris in an attempt to secure a fifth straight win at La Verticale de la Tour Eiffel. Then in May, all eyes will be on the Empire State Building, when Walsham will go for an incredible 10th title.

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