Vertical Rush 2015

Vertical Rush 2015 is a charity event with a difference. The tallest, toughest tower-running challenge in the UK, one that gives you the opportunity to conquer a skyscraper. Over a thousand people will take part in this tower-running challenge, powering up the 932 steps of London’s Tower 42 as quickly as possible, all in support of Shelter.

Vertical Rush 2015 takes place on Tuesday 3 March at Tower 42 in the heart of the City of London. Runners set off hourly between 7:30am and 4:30pm, all striving to get to the top as quick as possible, and we want you to be one of them.

You can take on the challenge of Vertical Rush on your own, or in a team of five. However you choose to take it on you will find the same dramatic reward waiting for you at the Vertical Rush finish line; sensational views across London’s iconic skyline, as you can see in our Vertical Rush gallery, not to mention our post-race refreshments and celebrations as you check your live Vertical Rush results.

By taking part in Vertical Rush, not only will you be taking on the UK’s most extreme vertical challenge, you’ll also be helping to raise over £350,000 for Shelter, and the millions of families facing bad housing and homelessness. Every 11 minutes another family becomes homeless in Britain. In that time you could power up the tower and help prevent another family from losing their home. You can even do it in your lunch-break!

We support you every step of the way, with training guides, personal trainer advice, and fundraising support. You’ll also get an exclusive Vertical rush t-shirt and a chance to win prizes as the fastest runner or top fundraiser.

In the past six years, over 5,000 runners have taken on Vertical Rush, raising over £2million for Shelter. Will you join us in 2015 to take on this unique challenge and help us continue fighting for a home for everyone?
