Rauno Tiits and Piret Poldsaar won at the TV Tower in Tallinn to retain their Estonian Championship titles.

Tiits ran the 870 steps in the narrow stairwell of the tower in 4:47 to improve on his time from last year by 12 seconds.

A close race for the title was anticipated leading into the event, with 2020 champion Rimo Timm returning to action having been absent in 2021.

Timm was a little off his personal best pace, but managed to take second with a 4:51 finish. Tarvi Tameri took third in 5:08.

Three in a row for Poldsaar

Piret Poldsaar bagged her third victory on the trot at Tallinn TV Tower with a winning time of 6:10.

The tough Estonian has held off strong competition at previous editions, but was relatively unchallenged by the closely matched athletes that followed. Kairi Tuulmägi finished second in 7.35 and youngster Arabella Raie third in 7.37.
