Tower running is a test of endurance and stamina. Participants compete for the shortest time to run up all of the interior staircases in a skyscraper. As seasoned athletes will tell you, tower running is really more about climbing and hoisting than running.

description

This month's race will be held in Taiwan at the Taipei 101 building on May 3. Put on some knee braces, lace up your most supportive shoes and prepare your mp3 player with some motivating music for a crazy climb up 91 floors (it's only 2046 steps).

For this challenge you will need to read the number of books to go at least 91 floors. You can read as many books as you want from each section, but only one from the last section. Books must be at least 200 pages unless specified. Re-reads are okay.

Books from this section will take you 5 floors:
Read any 200+ book.
Read a book with a cloud on the cover.
Read a book set in a very, very large city.
Read a book with a subtitle.

Each book in this section will take you 12 floors:
Read a book with a green cover.
Read a book where someone uses an elevator.
Read a book with more than 4 words in the title.
Read a book published in 2005.
Read a book with a millionaire (or an equivalent).

Each book in this section will take you 22 floors:
Read the eighth book in a series.
Read a book with a diamond on the cover.
Read a book within 24 hours.
Re-read a book you first read in school.
Read a book published in 1997.

Each book in this section will take you 45 floors:
Read a book set on an island.
Read a book where a main character is a chef.
Read a 'self-help' book.
Read a book where someone belongs to a private club.
Read a book that is at least 400+ pages.

Read two books by the same author.
Read a book that mentions an American president.

Some facts about the Taipei 101 tower that might explain some of the reading prompts:

It's the world's tallest 'green' building.
It sustained no damage in 2008's 6.8 earthquake.
Each of the 8 segments has 8 floors.
Each elevator cost $80 million.
A restaurant named Diamond Tony's is on the 85th floor.
On the 101st floor there is a private club called Summit 101.
Planning for the skyscraper began in 1997.
2005 was the first annual Taipei 101 Run Up.
Former US president Bill Clinton visited the tower and signed copies of his autobiography.

Alana (alockley) Quick question, does it have to be a real president? Or can it be a make believe president?


message 40: by Lanelle, Production Chief (new)

Lanelle | 13375 comments Mod
Make believe is fine. Um, now I'm curious. What book do you have in mind and who's the president, if you don't mind me asking.


message 41: by Alana (new)

Alana (alockley) I just finished 3 A.M. and the president is Connor Sullivan who is accused of murder. It was pretty good, I got the first book free on Kindle, but I will certainly be purchasing the next two books.


message 42: by Alana (new)

Alana (alockley) Damn...I just realized that it is less than 200 pages so I can't use it. Bummer...I shall keep looking!
