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.
Being the brainchild of the NTU Sports Club, NVM has had an extremely remarkable 23-year run since its inception in 1994. The overwhelming response received from the large congregation of climbing enthusiasts each year ensures that NVM continues to be a success. In fact, the continued success of NVM has inspired many other vertical marathons all across Singapore, making NVM one of the pioneer events for this relatively new sport of stair-climbing.
NVM 2018 is proudly organised by the 24th Organising Committee, whose goal is to bring the simple sport of stair-climbing to people of all ages and walks of life, sportsman or not. The committee hopes that NVM 2018 will further develop the prominence of vertical marathon events in the public eye, and encourage healthy lifestyles.
