The challenge with a view
Take on Tower 42 in the heart of the City of London with the ultimate tower-running challenge — the view from the top is worth every step!
What to expect
On Thursday 12 March 2020, over 1,000 runners will scale London’s iconic Tower 42 for Shelter.
Go solo or take on Vertical Rush as part of a team. All you need to do is get your game face on, and we’ll handle the rest.
Why your tower run helps people facing homelessness
A family in Britain is made homeless every 10 minutes – in this time, you could reach the top of Tower 42.
When you take on Vertical Rush for Shelter, you’re helping us be there for them and everyone who’s struggling with bad housing and homelessness. With your support, we can help millions of people in London, and across the United Kingdom.
Every pound you raise will help deliver real, incredible change. So sign up now, until there’s a home for everyone.
