Soh Wai Ching will race at the Sibu Tower Run tomorrow as he aims to win the event for a third straight time.

For the first time since the event began in 2017 there will be no 5km pre-run and runners will simply take on the 627 steps of Wisma Sanyan, giving Soh the perfect opportunity to go all out on the stairs.

Soh visited the tower last month to meet with race organisers and did a record-breaking practice run of 2:57 while there. He’ll be expecting to better that time tomorrow morning.

It’s a perfect final tune-up for the Malaysian before he heads to Paris to compete at La Verticale de la Tour Eiffel on Wednesday, March. 11.

The 627 steps at Wisma Sanyan closely matches the step count for the new format for La Verticale, which involves two qualifying rounds of 665 steps and a final run for the top 20 fastest men.
