Two-time tower running world champion Piotr Lobodzinski will return to action at the Rondo 1 Run-Up (Bieg na Szczyt Rondo 1) in Warsaw, Poland on 21 May.

The 36-year old Pole hasn’t raced on the stairs since February 2020, instead turning his attention to long-distance mountain/trail running during the pandemic-imposed restrictions on tower races.

Lobodzinski has won five of the previous nine races at the 836-step Rondo 1 tower in the Polish capital and also holds the course record of 3:27.60, which he set in the qualifying round in 2014.

The event is doubling as the fourth ‘European Towerrunning Championship’, with a strong field of runners that includes Malaysia’s Soh Wai Ching expected to be in attendance.

Athletes will each climb the 38 floors of Rondo 1 twice, in a time-trial format. The runner with the fastest combined time will win.
