Elite Race

Each year Eureka Climb offers a limited number of places to Elite Athletes to enter the first wave time of the day (6:45am) to race to the level 88 and take out the Elite Race challenge.

What is an Elite Athlete?

If you think you can climb 88 floors in sub 11 minutes (men) and sub 14 minutes (women) and you have an impressive Sporting CV you may qualify for our Elite Race.  Our current records are as follows:

7min 34sec 
(Mark Bourne – 2013)
9min 33sec (Alice McNamara 2011)

Applying for the Elite Race does NOT guarantee you entry into the race nor register you as a competitor for the Eureka Climb.  If you are successfully chosen to compete in the event you will be notified by email and supplied with a unique promo code to complete your on-line entry.


Cost to participate in the Elite Race is the same as an individual entry ($60), however you will not be required to raise a minimum pledge.  Once registered you will be allocated a set wave time of 6:45am on event day and will be required to collect your race kit from the Registration Tent between 6:00 – 6:30am.

I’ve already registered but want to apply for this category:

Should you wish or you have already entered as a normal climber and would still like to apply, this is perfectly acceptable. If your application is successful you will be notified and Eureka Climb will simply switch your wave time over to the Elite wave time of 6:45am.
