Melaka Hatten Vertical Run 2017

This is an event at the new hotel in Melaka known as Hatten Place. Please click for information on the hotel. It is a 45 story building where the start of the tower run will be held. There will be a 2km run in the vicinity of the venue before the participants are directed into the building, to commence ascending the tower.

The Tower run will also be broken into 3 sections. The first section will be run at the section of the mall known as Dragon’s Tail. The runners will traverse the shopping mall connected to the hotel by running up 4 flights of escalators. These escalators are positioned next to long window bays that allows you to look out whilst running up the escalator to a magnificent view of the city. The second section will be from 8th floor to the 15th Floor where the participants will then emerge into the midpoint to run to a second tower block to ascend to the top. The final section will be from the 15th Floor to 45th floor. There will be 2 water stops here and one marshal and a first aider per 5 floors.


You are advised not to push and be hasty in overtaking the other participants. We also advise you to take extra precaution in ascending the stairway. The stair way is narrow and there will not be sufficient space for more than 2 half person width.

The run will complete at the top of the building. There will be a timing mat there and a finish arch. Thereafter, the participants are required to proceed to return to ground level via the elevator of the building to assemble again at the ground level for refreshment ad prize giving. (tentatively - it will be announced if the amphitheater of the Elements Mall will be the venue for prize giving ceremony) and for prize giving and lucky draws.

    • Since the stair case is anti-clockwise (always turning left) please keep to the right if you know someone is going to overtake you.
    • Practice good sportsmanship. Don't push, pull or be a road block to people behind you who needs to overtake you. Allow people to overtake if they are able/strong.
    • The race is not a place for social gathering. No chatting, no socialising until you pass the finishing line. The staircase is very narrow so every inch of free space counts.
    • You are allowed 10 mins at the rooftop thereafter you have to make your way to the ground floor. This is to avoid crowds at the lifts.
    • Pace yourself. All too often people start the stair case really fast until they reach the 10th floor. Start slow, and build speed gradually. Or if you don't have speed, at least try to climb the stairs non stop.
    • No water bottles, no gel packs (you may have to consume and keep in pockets and throw into a dustbin but not on the stair case).

Participants are strongly encouraged to go for a medical examination and/ or consult their medical practitioner prior to registration and before the actual race day. The Organizer reserves the right to stop any participants deemed physically incapable of continuing the race to prevent further injuries.
