The Empire State Building Run Up has always been one of my favorites. Most stair climbs start in waves of 5-10 racers or start each individual a few seconds apart. But the ESBRU – the unofficial championship of stair climbs – has a unique mass start. As this video shows, it’s a bit of a contact sport at the start. Thankfully, Killer and Nate didn’t see this before last week’s race. Thanks to Rickey Gawley for reminding me about the video.

Do the men and women start separately? Just wondering if the women demonstrated the same degree of aggressive behavior……
there are two waves of men (elite and not-so-elite) and one wave of women. Check out the video at the NYRR site – http://nyrr.org/resources/video/misc/2008/esbru.asp and you’ll see that the women are not much kinder and gentler.
