If you're planning to be in New York and want to add something, certainly unusual and definitely memorable try this. A marathon with a difference and if it's raining you won't even get your feet wet. Apparently it's the oldest of a growing trend in vertical marathons and a wonderful idea for charity fund raising.

Lifts are for wimps, if this is a first for you, take care it's not your last there are a total of 1,576 half inch steps. It's only a fifth of a mile in distance but it's 1,050 feet up. Moscow, Munich, Sydney, Toronto, Vienna and Detroit are among other cities that hold vertical marathons. The record to date for the Empire State building is approx. 10 minutes and 16 seconds.

Take your mobile phone with you just in case you need to phone for help on the way up
