David Hanley

In 2009, realizing he was 50 pounds overweight and could barely run a block, David Hanley inexplicably decided to participate in one of the most grueling sports he could–stair racing!  After muddling along for a few years, he was accepted into the empire state building run-up, which lit his competitive fire and inspired him to take his training much more seriously.  Now, with several top-10 finishes under his belt, he is eagerly looking forward to seeing how far he can progress in the sport of stair racing.

David is also the Chief Statistical Officer for this site and the USSCA, is the creator of our scoring and ranking system and keeps it current and updated.
