Step Up For Mencap This Summer

Posted: May 3, 2016 in Uncategorized

It’s always an exciting time at Tower Running UK HQ when a new building plays host to a stair race. Last year the charity Mencap held a great event that involved three stair climbs around London, culminating in a final climb at 20 Fenchurch Street, aka the Walkie Talkie Building or the Jaguar Melter.

This year the Mencap team return to Fenchurch Street on Sunday 17 July with a single-climb event. The unique-looking building in the City of London has 36 floors and 828 steps, in a left turning staircase that is perfect for fast times.

Competitors will be treated to amazing views from the top and a champagne reception in the popular Sky Garden, Europe’s highest roof garden. Add to that prizes for the fastest runners and highest fundraisers and you have a brilliant event for a great cause – helping support those with learning disabilities.
