Dear Mr Trevor Folgering,
Thank you for your enquiry regarding your intention to attempt the record for ‘Cn Tower Endurance Record'. Your proposal is not of interest to us as a new category. However, we have searched our Record Database and think that the following record may be of interest to you instead: ’Stair climbing - vertical height (12 hours)’.
The current record (current as at the date of this letter) is: Russell Gill climbed the 835 steps of the Rhodes State Office Tower in Columbus, Ohio, USA 53 times (a total of 44,255 steps and a vertical height of 8141.8m (26,712ft) in 9 hr 16 min 24 sec on 20 February 1994. He went down by lift each time.
You may wish to check with us again closer to submitting your full claim to be sure that a new record has not been set in the interim.
