Third KölnTurm Treppenlauf
The sun was shining on 29 August for the third KölnTurm Treppenlauf (KölnTurm tower race). A total of some 200 runners in four different categories – fire brigade with/without compressed-air breathing apparatus, solo runners and teams of two – climbed the 39 storeys with their 700 steps.
The fastest runner reached the 39th floor in 3 minutes and 27 seconds. After two successful events in 2012 and 2013, and a break last year, KölnTurm became the host of this unique running event for the third time. The agency pulsschlag, the sports club Feuerwehr-Sportverein Köln e.V. and MediaPark Köln Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH were all major contributors in terms of making the event a success, as was the law firm Kempkes Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH, which made the lift lobby of its rental property available to use.
