After two races with exactly the same podium for the females everything seems to be decided. But while favourite Suzy Walsham (AUS) at Vienna's Danube Tower won by a comfortable 7 seconds, at AZ Tower Zuzana Krchova (CZE) was less than a second away from a surprising win. Veronika Windisch (AUT) managed to secure her first podium ranks in a Towerrunning Tour event.

July 23 - Race Report - Carrera Towerrunning Trail Tlaxcala - Escalinata de los Heroes 

Mexico is a country with one of the most active Towerrunning communities worldwide and naturally there are all kinds of stair races. One of the most beautiful is the outdoor race in the historic city of Tlaxcala, where 1400 stairs have to be conquered within a 5k run. The race was held for the 3rd time, like last year it was a member event of the Towerrunning Tour and 400 participants from all ages competed and had fun.

In Tlaxcala we have the rare fact, that the municipality is full behind the event and in cooperation with the team of Towerrunning Mexico led by President Roberto Velazquez makes this a special one with extra divisions and prices for children, master and veteran categories.

In the female race we saw a clear win for Rocio Carrera Clemente, in March also champion at Torre Latino in Mexico City,  with a time of 32:03. About three minutes later Araceli Castillo Lopez crossed the finish line, followed by Masters Division winner Victoria Cocoletzi Cumatzi and the internationally experienced Maria Elisa Lopez, currently on 8th position in the TWA ranking.

Fastest male of the day was Alexis Trujillo (4th last December at the PanAmerican Championships in Bogota) clocking a winning time of 26:24. Runner up less than a minute behind was Gustavo Isaac Mendoza (9th and youngest in the actual TWA Top10) followed by Carlos Alberto Belmont. The winner of the Masters Division Daniel Balmori Gonzalez placed 12th overall and the Veterans Division champion Ignacio Manrique scored points for Mexican and TWA rankings too.

Lots of pictures from the race you can find here:

Next event in the Mexican series will be the Grand Prix Towerrunning Acapulco, a three day race in various venues of this famous resort. This is a member race of the Towerrunning Tour as well as the Mexican season final and first National Championships on December 17th in Mexico City.
