La Verticale de Tour Eiffel © l'EcoTrail de Paris®


In the format of a race against the clock, La Verticale de la tour Eiffel® invites participants to scale the Eiffel Tower's steps up to the 3rd floor where they will find the finish line; that's 1,665 steps travelling 276 m up in the air!

The 130 competitors fighting for first place have been handpicked for the event. Coming from a range of sporting backgrounds (from trail-runners used to natural slopes, to specialists in tower running, to marathon runners and more), they will all tackle this unique Parisian trial in a bid to take home the prize.

This dizzying track will be run individually, with participants setting off one after another. The race is set to start at 8pm, and the final runner must reach the finish line by 10pm, with the awards ceremony set at 10.15pm.


All public

La tour Eiffel

A not-to-be-missed monument and symbol of the capital, the Eiffel Tower stands 325 m tall, and weighs 10,100 tons, 7,300 of which are just for the metallic skeleton of the structure. Created in 2 years, 2 months and 5 days, it was built for the Exposition Universelle of 1889.

You can go up the Eiffel Tower by the stairs or by lift. On the completely refurbished 1st floor, there are shops; on the 2nd, treat yourself to a gastronomic meal at the famous Jules Verne restaurant (closed for works), 125 m above ground. Finally on the 3rd floor you are at cloud level and have an exceptional 360° view!
