The fifth edition of La Verticale de la Tour Eiffel takes place tomorrow evening and all eyes will be on Paris for the biggest race in the European tower running calendar.

Piotr Lobodzinski and Suzy Walsham will each be going for a fifth straight win at the tallest building in France.

Unfortunately footage of this year’s event won’t come close to what’s been available at previous editions, but you’ll still be able to catch some of the action.

Previous editions have been televised on Eurosport or shown on a full live stream online, but this year live footage will only be available from the departure area at the base of the tower. Viewers will get to see runners warming up and heading off into the tower, plus some pre-race interviews, too.

The rest of the action up the tower and at the finish, which will presumably be quite limited, will filter through via videos and images after a delay.

The live stream of the event will begin at 7pm UK time (8pm local time) and you can access it through the Facebook page below:

If you’re unable to watch the stream, but want to try and catch updates on other social media, it seems the official hashtag for the event is #Eiffeltowervertical and #VerticaleTourEiffel.
