This is a real challenge! It’s hailed as the best and biggest stair running event in the UK. That’s right, running up the stairwells of Tower 42 in the City of London – which is named after its 42 floors! The achievement of completing this exciting event is doubled by the fact it is all done in aid of Shelter, the housing and homelessness charity, raising an impressive £350,000 at the 2013 event.
Following the success of Vertical Rush London, Caledonian Concepts organised the Vertical Rush Liverpool in 2011 taking on the mighty Radio City Tower with its 558 steps; and the UK’s first stadium stair running event, Orbital Rush, at Hillsborough, also in 2011, where hundreds of runners raced up, down and around the stadium. Both events were on behalf of Shelter.
