Alexis Trujillo Scale the Strat

Alexis Trujillo set a new course record at Scale the Strat in Las Vegas.

The 28-year old Mexican took 17 seconds off the existing landmark when he clocked 6:46 at the 1,393-step Strat.

It was the second straight win at the tower for Trujillo, who ran 27 seconds faster than his winning time in 2019.

Trujillo will be back in action on March 1 at the Carrera Vertical Torre Latino (720 steps) in Mexico City, where he will be looking to go one better than the second place he took at the event last year. On this form, who could bet against him?
