Kamila Chomanicova won for the second year in a row at the Pyramidenkogel Tower Run in Austria on Saturday.

In a repeat of last year’s event, Slovakia’s Chomanicova managed to edge out two-time winner and course record holder Veronika Windisch to hold on for a well-earned victory.

Chomanicova reached the top of the tower in 2:38.61 with Austrian Windisch clocking 2:48.34.

Kenyan newcomer Veronicah Maina completed the podium with a decent 3:02.18 finish on her debut.

It was the fourth edition of the challenging event that sees runners set off up a 180m incline before entering the Pyramidenkogel Tower and scaling its 441 steps.

The Slovakian star edges ever closer to the 2:35.32 course record set by Veronika Windisch back in 2018. Chomanicova has been steadily lowering her times year-on-year at the Pyramidenkogel: 3:02 in 2018, 2:47 in 2019, 2:43 in 2020 and 2:38 in 2021.
