Cindy Harris powered to the top of the Empire State Building last night to win the 43rd edition of the famous Run-Up.

It’s the fifth time the 52-year old from Indianapolis has won the race, with her previous wins coming in 1998, 2000, 2001 and 2003.

Harris climbed to the top of the tower’s 1,576 steps and out onto the observation deck finish line in 14.01, in what was her 23rd appearance at the ESBRU.

The American was followed by Mexico’s Maria Elisa Lopez in 14.12 and fellow American Shari Klarfeld in 14.15.

Malaysia’s Soh Wai Ching took victory in the men’s division with a time of 10.46, taking an impressive 28 seconds off the time he set on his ESBRU debut in 2019.

Soh was followed by 2018 winner Frank Nicolas Carreño from Colombia who clocked 11.23, while third went to Mexico’s Alexis Trujillo who finished in 11.39.
