CityPoint and Broadgate Tower have been donated as race locations for a 935 foot, 67 floor charity fund-raiser.
On Sunday 23rd May fund-raisers will participate in the ultimate office challenge, a race to the peak of CityPoint and Broadgate Tower, two of London’s most iconic buildings.
The event is being organised by Action Against Hunger, who attempt to raise money for malnourished people in over 40 countries worldwide.
Before starting the race participants will be able to enjoy a pre-event warm up with a mystery celebrity personal trainer.
Then it is onto the challenge which is no small feat, as the two buildings are some of the largest in London.
CityPoint is a stunningly designed glass tower but I doubt the racers will be focused on the beauty of the building. Rather they will be transfixed on the 33 floors, 66 staircases, 673 agonizing steps and a summit of 394 feet.
After reaching the peak, participants will take the elevator to the ground floor and then move onto Broadgate Tower
The impressive Broadgate Tower, which is owned by British Land, is even taller and more of a challenge. The tower features 34 floors, 68 staircases, 839 equally agonising steps and a summit of 540 feet.
However the tower does offer an amazing 360 degree view of the London’s skyline, which is thought to be an idyllic finish line for the fund-raising challenge.
An Action Against Hunger representative said, “We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our sponsors for their support of The London Twin Peak Challenge in association with The Broadgate Tower & CityPoint, without whom this event would not have been possible.”
