After a successful first year, Tower Run is back giving you the unique opportunity to run all the way to the top of Leicester’s tallest occupied building.

Run (or walk if you have to) up all 351 steps in one go and be greeted with a fantastic view across Leicester, once you reach the top of the iconic blue tower.

Think you could make it?

It’s not as easy as it looks…

Stair running is a relatively new concept, however it is guaranteed to get the blood pumping and provide you with a completely different kind of challenge right in the heart of Leicester. Last year saw the inaugural event feature live on Clueless on BBC Radio Leicester, with a whole range of people taking part.

All participants may enter for FREE, provided you pledge to raise £50 sponsorship in aid of LOROS Hospice. Alternatively you can opt to pay a simple entry fee of £17. Online registration is open now.

On the day, you will find us on the concourse outside of the Premier Inn at the base of the building, with the start on the ground floor just round the corner. The cafe will also be open to purchase hot drinks if you so wish.

Start times will be allocated and all final details send out two weeks before the event, with starts at regular intervals between 10:30am and 12:30pm. The event is timed and provisional results will be available at the start tent on the day. All entrants reaching the top will receive their own finisher's medal and be rewarded with great views in all directions across Leicester.

As start times are limited, we recommend that you register in advance to avoid disappointment. You may choose a preferred start time (early, middle or late) upon registration and we will do our best to keep group starts close together and meet all preferences if possible. We welcome both runners and walkers!
