Take on the Tower in March!

Join us for the biggest Tower Run event in the Midlands as hundreds race their way to top of Leicester's tallest occupied building! Sitting proudly right in the heart of Leicester City Centre with it brightly coloured windows your challenge is to run or walk your way up all 20 floors and 351 steps of the iconic St. George’s Tower. 2017 saw elites from as far away as Spain and Austria step up alongside local runners and LOROS supporters alike and 2018 is set to host our biggest turnout yet!

Tower Running is still a relatively new concept but represents one of the toughest, most intense workouts you can do. All finishers will receive a medal for their hard work as well as a glass of Prosecco to celebrate once they reach the finish on the top floor. You can also enjoy the great views across the entire city!

All participants may enter for FREE, provided you pledge to raise £50 sponsorship in aid of LOROS Hospice. Alternatively, if you prefer not to fundraise you can opt to pay a simple entry fee of £17.

Registration will open on Tuesday 21st November 2017 – simply click the ‘Register Now’ button to sign yourself up!

The event hub will be based on the concourse outside of the Premier Inn at the base of the building, with the start on the ground floor just around the corner. The cafe will also be open to purchase hot drinks if you so wish. Participants will start at regular intervals between 10:30am and 12:30pm, and you will be able to choose a preferred 'early', 'middle', or 'late' start slot during registration. For any teams or groups that register we will endeavour to keep your start times close together as much as possible. The event is timed and provisional live results will be available at the start tent on the day.

Children between the age of 14 and 17 may take part so long as a parent or guardian is on-site at the event, whilst children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a participating adult at all times. The minimum age limit is 8 years old.
