WHAT IS NATIONAL VERTICAL MARATHON?
Designed as an alternative to conventional flat-road marathons, National Vertical Marathon (NVM) is a race that sees its participants scale the entirety of a skyscraper. It is a sport that befits Singapore, an urban city filled with tall buildings, and provides a hearty physical challenge to all participants as well.
The brainchild of the NTU Sports Club, NVM has had an extremely remarkable 22-year run since its inception in 1994. The enthusiastic response that every annual event has had, bolstered by the support of a loyal congregation of climbing enthusiasts, ensures that NVM continues to be a success yearly. In fact, the continued success of NVM has inspired many other vertical marathons all across Singapore, making NVM one of the pioneering events for this relatively new sport of stair-climbing.
The 2017 edition of NVM is proudly organised by the 23rd NVM Organising Committee. The continued goal of the committee has remained constant throughout the years — to bring the simple sport of stair-climbing to people of all ages and walks of life, sportsman or not. The committee hopes that the coming NVM 2017 will further develop the prominence of vertical marathon events in the public eye. We also hope to encourage the development of a healthy lifestyle through the hosting of this event as well.
