Run or walk up all 351 steps to receive a well-earned medal and glass of prosecco to celebrate.

Sign up as an individual or put a team together with friends or colleagues and chase each other to the top. Register online now to take on the tower and ascend into greatness!

Registration will run from November 2019 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 and you will be able to choose a preferred 'early', 'middle', or 'late' start slot during registration.

If you are registering as part of a group of friends, team or club, please make sure that you include a team name or the names of those in your group when you register so that we can group your start times together. 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, or by phone on (0116) 231 8431.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday 14th March!
