The Broadgate Tower Run Up returns for its 3rd edition on Saturday 24th November 2018, welcoming competitors to the home of UK Towerrunning to once again tackle the 877 steps over 35 floors of Broadgate Tower in the heart of The City of London.

In 2018 we are coming back bigger and better and we are pleased to announce the addition of our new family categories. 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 however we are offering you 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 extremely limited so sign up quickly if you are interested.

You can either enter directly through Total Motion or you may wish to enter via one of our charity partners. If you opt to enter directly simply register now, however if you opt to raise money for a charity please contact them first to obtain an entry code. We are proud to be the only stair climbing event allowing participants to raise money for a charity of their choice.

Running alongside this event will be the elite race, which comprises 2 climbs of The Tower, with aggregate time deciding the overall result. This category is not only open to registered elite athletes, but also anybody who in the past 12 months has reached the required sporting standard (contact us for entry criteria).

This really is set to be a festival of towerrunning the likes of which have not been seen in the UK before, don't miss your opportunity to be part of this incredible event. We look forward to welcoming our regular competitors and especially all those new to towerrunning to Broadgate Tower on Saturday 24th November.

If you are a charity wishing to join our challenge, then please get in touch.
