Around 200 runners from 24 countries took part in the Empire State Building Run-Up on Tuesday sponsored by Turkish Airlines.
In the world's first and most famous tower race, runners climbed 1,576 stairs, or 1,050 vertical feet (320 meters), to the 86th floor of the fifth tallest building in the US for the 43rd annual event.
