    Empire St Bldg vertical race

    Anyone?

    600 set for race to top of Empire State Building

    *** People from around the world are taking part in a vertical race up 86 flights of stairs at the Empire State Building. That's a total of 1,576 steps, starting at the lobby and finishing at the observation deck.
    The annual Empire State Building Run-up is being held tonight. ***

    Did I hear a guy won this in a little over ten minutes yesterday?

    10 minutes * 60 seconds = 600 seconds

    1567 steps into 600 seconds = 2.6 steps per second (SPS)

    I'm sure you just hit every other step. Although the U-turns would get dizzying after a while on the way up.
