Troy ‘The Future’ Alston aka Stair Climb Elite and Stephanie ‘The Oracle’ Hucko set new course records at the Bank of America Tower in Jacksonville, Florida last weekend.

Locked in a year-on-year rivalry with ‘The Flying Doctor’ Thomas Scott, Alston was aiming to make it six wins in a row as he headed into his hometown event.

The inclusion of John ‘Renegade’ Osborn into the mix this year meant Alston had to dig deep to secure victory again. His time last year at the 832 step Bank of America Tower was an incredibly speedy 4:24.

The Future managed to wipe five full seconds off that, crossing the mat in 4:19.

Thomas Scott took second in 4:37, with Osborn just behind him in 4:41.

In her first time racing in Jacksonville, Stephanie ‘The Oracle’ Hucko ran the fastest time ever by a woman at the event as she reached the top in 5:21 – only the second ever sub-six minute time in the ladies division.

Coming off a strong fifth place finish at the demanding Empire State Building Run Up just three days before, the Australian’s time was fast enough to earn her an impressive sixth place overall on the day.

Kate ‘The Say Hey Kid’ Mays took second in 6:26, with Suzanne “The Fjord” Bergen completing the podium in 6:30.
