The Brisbane Vertical Night Sprint may be over but our memories will last forever. Check out the happy snaps of our strong starters and even stronger finishers as they took on the 707 step climb up one of the world’s tallest purpose-built student accommodation buildings.
P.S. in case you were wondering… the fastest sprinter made it up the 39 floors or 707 steps in only 3.14 minutes.
The sun set over Student One Wharf Street as more than 250 participants geared up for the race of their lives.
Greeted by our impressive team of volunteers, participants registered and collected their Brisbane Vertical Night Sprint kit including an event singlet and headband.
The atmosphere and adrenaline was pumping at the starting line as our sprinters began to make the ascent cheered on by those to follow.
Mid-sprint we saw a variety of techniques from sprinters – our favourites included using the handrails to propel themselves forward and stopping for a quick selfie.
Celebrations were high as our sprinters crossed the finish line.
There were smiles all round as participants enjoyed the food, drinks, and live-entertainment at the top.
A big thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers and participants for making this event possible. With over $25,000 raised for Brisbane Youth Services we dub the Brisbane Vertical Night Sprint a success.
Thanks to our sponsors.
