David Harris took victory at Manchester’s 798-step Beetham Tower with a winning time of 5:02.

The veteran tower runner won by over 30 seconds, trailed by Phil Evans (5:34) and Oliver Llewellyn-Smith (5:43).

It was a welcome return to the top of the podium for Harris, who has been narrowly kept off the top spot at multiple events the past few years.

He finished second at the last running of the The Christie Tower Run in 2019 – where he clocked his personal best of 4:33 – and was also second at last month’s LOROS Tower Run in Leicester.

Cosp sets new course record

In the women’s division, 2019 winner Marta Cosp came back to take 11 seconds off her own event record, with a winning time of 5:25. It was a dominant performance by Cosp, who was followed by Rachel Tomalin in 6:23 and Naomi Lambert in 7:14.
