A unique race

Set in a monument that is entirely open to the outside, the Eiffel tower Vertical® is a unique tower running event.

The event offers a one-of-a-kind experience in the world’s most visited monument. After a massive effort to climb up the 1665 steps of the tower, participants will be able to celebrate their ascension with a spectacular view of Paris by night.

The event will open the week of the 2019 EcoTrail Paris.

 

Pre-registration

Pre-registration to the race requires you to meet one of the conditions stated on this page and in the race rules.

During pre-registration, you must choose one of the two given categories: "elite" or "amateur".

If, after review of your application, your request to run in the "elite" category is not approved, we will put you in the "amateur" category for the random draw.

Elite runners will be selected by an expert committee. Non-selected elite runners will be automatically put in the amateur random draw.
