Marta Cosp took top spot at Vertical Montserrat on Saturday to make it three wins from three stair races in 2022.

The Spanish athlete, who’s based in Manchester, UK, powered her way up the 2,180-step Montserrat Funicular in Collbató, Spain in unseasonably hot conditions to take the win in 15:32.

In what was the fourth edition of the popular outdoor stair climb, Cosp managed to finish ahead of the previously undefeated three-time champion Alba Xandri.

Xandri finished second in 16:15 and Rosa Maria Nieta Zamora’s time of 16:27 earned her third place.

Cosp had already secured UK wins this year with a record-breaking run at Manchester’s Beetham Tower in April and victory in her debut at London’s Walkie Talkie Tower in May.

In the men’s open division, Angel Lopez Amor won in 13:05, while Marc Toda Vericat (13:39) narrowly edged out Marc Cantenys Ribalta (13:40) for second spot on the podium.
