Christian Riedl held off the challenge from Italy’s Fabio Ruga to win the TK Elevator Tower Run on Sunday.

German Riedl, who won the inaugural event in 2018, climbed the 1,390 steps of the ThyssenKrupp Tower in Rottweil, Germany in 7:32.

2019 winner, and current European Towerrunning champion, Ruga clocked 7:40, with Gorge Heimann (GER) taking third spot in 7:50.

Both Riedl and Ruga were well off their personal bests of 6:56 and 6:57, respectively. But Riedl will be happy to have taken the win ahead of the man who finished ahead of him at the European Towerrunning Championship back in May.

In the women’s division, Verena Schmitz made it three wins from three starts at the TK Elevator Tower Run. Her 9:26 finish left her well clear of Monica Carl (9:43) and Bettina Hussak (9:50).

European Champion Ruga will next be in action at the Empire State Building Run-Up on 6 October.
