NEW YORK - A pair of Australians won a race to the top - or to the 86th floor, anyway.

Aussies captured the top spots in the men's and women's races in the annual Empire State Building Run-up on Wednesday night.

Mark Bourne won for the first time with a time of 10 minutes, 12 seconds while compatriot Suzy Walsham won the women's division in 12:05.

It's the fourth time she's won the race, tying the record for most wins by a woman.

"I'm so thrilled that I won," Walsham said.

"I feel surprisingly good" at the finish. She's run the race a total of six times."

It's "a great feeling to come out on top," he said.

Australians took both second-place slots as well, with Darren Wilson finishing in 10:45 seconds and Brooke Logan finishing in 12:48.
