Dare to take the stairs for a sky-high tower run challenge.

Sprint, run or walk up one of London’s most recognisable landmarks, 20 Fenchurch Street – affectionately known as the Walkie Talkie building - and raise money to help seriously ill children at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Climb over 36 floors and 896 steps before being rewarded at the top with a celebratory drink and spectacular 360-degree views of London from the beautiful Sky Garden with a friend or family member. *

Your registration fee includes a technical t-shirt, timing chip, finisher’s medal and celebratory drink in the Sky Garden. Please note this event is only available for over 16s. If you are under 18, you will need a parent/guardian to register for you.

*Due to Covid-19 we are limiting the number of spectators per participant to one adult and one child.

Why we need you

We ask every climber to try and raise £250 for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). Your registration fee goes towards the cost of putting on the event, so by fundraising, you'll help to fund ground breaking research, advanced equipment, children and family support services and the rebuilding and refurbishment of wards and medical facilities within the hospital.

GOSH needs your support more than ever. Children still need to come to GOSH for treatment every single day. But, even as restrictions in the wider world have eased, their parents are bringing them to the hospital under very different circumstances.

Our Covid-19 guidelines

We want to provide reassurance to our Tower Climb champions and so, should the event be cancelled due to Covid-19 concerns, you will be offered a full refund of your registration fee or the option to donate your registration fee to the charity. We will make every effort to find an alternative date if it is cancelled, but if you are unable to make the postponed date, the same offer applies to your registration fee.

The health and safety of everyone involved, from participants and spectators, to our staff and volunteers, is our highest priority and so we have also made alterations to the event to make it more Covid safe. See our FAQs for full details.
