3-peat and record set at Eureka climb

3-peat and record set at Eureka climb Image

The Eureka climb was run and won last week, with a new record time set and both men’s and women’s champions in the elite category defending their titles from last year.

Melbourne’s Alice McNamara (pictured above with men’s winner Mark Bourne) has made the women’s elite category her own, winning her third straight event in nine minutes and 51 seconds.

Canberra resident Mark Bourne scaled the 89 storeys in an incredible seven minutes and 59 seconds as he went back-to-back in the elite male category.

It wasn’t all serious as many entrants took the opportunity to dress up and compete, with teams from emergency services scaling in full uniform and a team of lizards wriggling up the tower.

The climbs main aim is to raise funds and awareness for charities Interplast and Whitelion.

The total raised was over $280,000.
