Could you run or walk all the way to the top of one of Leicester’s tallest, most iconic buildings?

The LOROS Tower Run is the biggest event of its kind in the Midlands with hundreds of regular runners and first-timers alike all racing their way to the top of Leicester's tallest occupied building!

Right in the heart of Leicester City Centre, and round the corner from the train station, St. George’s Tower certainly stands out with its vibrant colours for all to see but could you run or walk your way up all 20 floors and 351 steps right the way to the top!? Since the event’s inception, we have seen elites from as far away as Spain and Austria step up alongside local runners and LOROS supporters to tackle the stairs of Leicester’s most iconic building. Without out a doubt, 2019 will be the biggest and best yet!

Registration will run from December 2018 through to early March, closing a few days before the event – 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. Participants will start at regular intervals between 10:15 am and 13:15 pm, and you will be able to choose a preferred 'early', 'middle', or 'late' start slot during registration.

Would any teams or groups that register, please make sure that you make a note of this when you register and we will endeavour to keep your start times close together as much as possible. The event is chip-timed and live results will be available at the start tent on the day.

As start times are limited we recommend that you register in advance to avoid disappointment. We welcome both runners and walkers. 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 participating adults at all times. The minimum age limit is 8 years old.

Tower Running is one of the toughest, most intense workouts you can do – leg burn is guaranteed!

All finishers will receive a medal for their trouble as well as a glass of prosecco to celebrate once they reach the finish on the top floor. Don't forget to take in the great views across the entire city!

For any further queries please contact the LOROS Fundraising Department by email at fundraising@loros.co.uk, or by phone on (0116) 231 8431.

LOROS Hospice is a local charity and every year we care for over 2,500 people across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. We provide free, high-quality, compassionate care and support to terminally ill adult patients, their family and carers. We are proud that 91p of every £1 donated goes directly towards patient care.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday 9th March!
