Soh Wai Ching, Champ of the Empire State Building Run-Up
“Towerrunning is similar to our life, like we constantly climb up the ladder to promote ourselves to work at a higher level from normal staff to manager, and to see all that kind of level so we climb up all the time, just step by step, and then the sport itself we have to constantly push, constantly give our best shot on everything that we do.”—Soh Wai Ching
The interview was done prior to Soh Wai Ching’s participation in the Empire State Building Run-Up.
It’s safe to say that most Malaysians have probably never heard of towerrunning. Is it just as simple as running in a tower? Of course not, which is why we interviewed the founder of the Malaysia TowerRunning Association as well as World Towerrunning #2, Soh Wai Ching, about the unique sport of towerrunning. Here are some of the questions we asked him:
- What is towerrunning?
- What inspired you to get into tower running and founding Malaysia Towerrunning Association?
- How would you encourage more Malaysians to take up this special sport?
