There are stair races in many different countries all over the world

Runners climb skyscrapers, towers and outdoor staircases. The main concern of the elite runners is to be faster than the others - most of us climb stairs for fitness reasons very often combined with a charity aspect and we like race atmosphere.The idea of this World Cup is to create a ranking for elite stair racers taking into account that for obvious reasons there are not many possibilities of direct competition.
