Tristan Roth powered to a new course record at the Base 2 Space event in Seattle yesterday, with a winning time of 4:17.

Roth took three seconds off the previous course record set by Sproule Love at the 2018 event, on his way to the top of the 832-step tower.

The new record time was 17 seconds faster than Roth’s previous best of 4:34, which won him the event in 2016.

It’s the fourth time the Seattle man has finished on the podium in the event’s five-year history.

Mark Henderson, 52, rolled back the years to secure second spot in 4:35, a massive 35-second improvement on his time from last year. Russell Webb also made a huge improvement on his previous best time to finish third in 4:49.

In the women’s division, Jessica Pickett finished in 6:00 to take her first win at the event. Debbie Officer (6:17) and Tricia O’Hara (6:24) took second and third place, respectively, for the second year in a row.
