We are proud to inform that Krystian Herba - World Guinness record holder in most stairs climbed on bike - will be attempting to climb 836 steps of the Rondo 1 during our race on February 24.
- We are constantly trying to surprise our runners with something new and fresh. Be it the European Championships two years ago or the first evening run last year. This time, we have come up with something spectacular. After all, how often do you see a guy jumping on his bike to the 37th floor? – says Piotr Jakóbik, press officer of the Rondo 1 Run Up.
Krystian Herba is a five time World Guinness record holder, climbing the world's highest buildings on his bike. So far, he has conquered 13 of them in 10 different countries. After he climbed the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw in 2009, he has managed to do the same in such landmarks as the Willis Tower in Chicago, Taipei 101 in Taiwan or the Chinese Shanghai World Financial Center. Currently, he holds World Guinness records in the most stairs climbed on a bike (3461) and the most stairs climbed on a bike in a minute (119).
- Every new building gives me enormous satisfaction. No one has climbed more buildings than I have so I am excited to add the Rondo 1 to my collection. Assuming, of course, everything will go my way – says Krystian Herba. - This will be my first opportunity to meet other athletes conquering the highest buildings in the world. Although, they do it in a bit more traditional way than I do. My goal is to get to the finish line in under 20 minutes – he adds.
Rondo 1 Run Up will take place on February 24, 2018 and will traditionally support the SOS Children's Villages in Poland. The race holds Towerrunning 120 status and is the part of the Towerrunning Tour 2018, governed by the Towerrunning World Association.
