No new date set for annual 'vertical marathon' as race up Taiwan landmark canceled
By: Matthew Strong, Taiwan News, Staff Writer
Since 2005, each year on one day in May, thousands of athletes from dozens of countries participate in the arduous “vertical marathon.” They typically run and climb 2,046 steps up to the iconic building’s 91st floor.
However, concerns about possible mass infections led Taipei 101 to announce Friday that this year’s edition would not take place in May. A new date has yet to be determined, CNA reported.
