COURSE CONDITIONS

Bitexco Financial Tower is a relatively new building (2010) and all stairs, railings, and running surfaces are in good condition.  Standard running shoes should be adequate for this event.  Before reaching the starting line, runners should make certain their shoes are securely tied.  Loose laces can cause one to trip and fall while ascending the building.  It is good practice for runners to double knot shoelaces for safety.  It is also recommended that runners avoid participating with any accessories or loose fitting jewelry (necklaces, bracelets, large earrings etc) that might fall off during the climb.
