CHICAGO (AP) – Cindy Harris won the women’s division of a race to the top of the nation’s tallest building for the sixth straight year Sunday.

The 38-year-old has won the race every year it has been held. She was among 2,000 people who ran the 103 flights of stairs in the Go Vertical Chicago race.

Harris, of Indianapolis, raced up the 2,109 steps from the lobby to the Sears Tower Skydeck in 15 minutes, 1 second. Eric Leninger, a 24-year-old from Geneva, won the men’s race in 13 minutes, 42 seconds.

The event was expected to raise $350,000 for the New York-based Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation.
