Kamila Chomanicova won the third edition of Beh Na Vezu in Levoca, Slovakia with another dominant performance.

The impressive Slovakian completed the pre-run and race up the 216 steps of St James’ Basilica in 1:06.68, missing her own course record by just one second.

Chomanicova has won each edition of the Beh Na Vezu, which began in 2019, and set the course record of 1:05.68 last year.

This win follows her similarly impressive victory at the Pyramidenkogel two weeks ago, and second-place finish at KoelnTurm Treppenlauf in Cologne, Germany in August.

The most active athlete on the reemerging international tower running scene, Chomanicova is fast establishing herself as the rising star of European stair racing.

She is on the start list for the Empire State Building Run-Up in October. But travel restrictions mean it’s currently very difficult for European athletes to secure entry to the USA, so her participation in the world’s longest-running stair race remains uncertain.
