Shelter's Vertical Rush is set to be bigger than ever this year

Shelter is inviting London to help end homelessness by scaling the impressive 932 steps and 42 floors of Tower 42. Participants can either sign up as a solo runner or make it a team effort and race each other to the top.

The UK’s epic tower-running challenge Vertical Rush will be taking place on Thursday 12 March 2020. Since the event launched in 2009, more than 11,000 runners have raced to the top of the iconic Tower 42 in the City of London. Now in its 12th year, runners are being offered the chance to push themselves even further by running a Vertical Mile – or ten times up the tower! Choose your challenge and help support Shelter.

Our country is in the grip of a major housing crisis. Across the UK, too many people are struggling with homelessness and bad housing, but Shelter won’t stop fighting until everyone has a safe place to call home.

Not only will participants help to raise funds for Shelter’s vital frontline services, they’ll have the satisfaction of completing an incredible challenge. All runners are kitted out with a technical running top and goodie bag, provided with chip-timed results and receive a medal and celebratory free sports massage at the end of the race.

Registration is £30 for a solo runner or £135 for a team of 5 (£27 each). You can also take on the extreme challenge of running a Vertical Mile for £35.

You’ll need to pledge to raise £180 as a solo runner, £850 as a group or £350 for the vertical mile. You can sign up here.
