The Broadgate Tower Run Up returns for its third edition on Saturday 24th November 2018.
For the first time this exciting tower running event will play host to the London leg of the prestigious Vertical World Circuit, welcoming the best stair climbers in the world to tackle the 35 floors and 877 steps of Broadgate Tower, in the heart of London.
This is the UK’s only stair climbing event in which competitors can compete for a charity of their choice or opt to enter directly through Total Motion.
Broadgate Tower Run Up is set to be a fantastic festival of stair climbing, the likes of which have not been seen before in the UK.
Event categories and races
For 2018 the event is welcoming the addition of new family categories, with options for 1 adult + 1 child, as well as 2 adults + 2 children.
This is in addition to the Individual, ¼ Vertical Mile, Vertical Mile and Elite races. Most stair climbing events consist of one climb to the top, but Total Motion is offering the chance to climb it 3 times to reach a quarter vertical mile, or 12 times to reach a full vertical mile! Spaces for these challenges are limited, so sign up quickly if you are interested.
Also new at The Broadgate Tower Run Up this year is a StepJockey branded wave. StepJockey is transforming workplace health through its incentive-based stair climbing programme, which encourages employees to take the stairs rather than the lift. The Broadgate Tower Run Up is the perfect platform for StepJockey as it provides a real-world event to which StepJockey can invite its partners and clients. They will be fundraising for their own corporate charities and building on the workplace challenges they have already put in place.
Running alongside this event will be an Elite race welcoming the top stair climbing talent from around the world. If you wish to be considered for elite entry into the race please contact Total Motion.
