Vertical Rush 2016
SBA London proudly completed the Vertical Rush Challenge at Tower 42 in aid of Shelter UK.
Tower 42 is named after its 42 floors; it’s the third tallest skyscraper in the city and was designed by Richard Seifert in the 1970’s. Vertical Rush is the tallest and toughest tower-running event in the UK and the challenge was simple; we had to race as fast as we could up the 932 steps all in aid of Shelter UK.
Our main focus for taking on the Vertical Rush challenge was not to win the race but to raise as much money as possible in support of Shelter. A charity we all felt strongly towards helping and supporting. Shelter helps both the homeless and poorly housed people in England and Scotland and fights for better investments to be made in housing laws and policies.
After registering the SBA team were greeted by a brass band playing ‘eye of the tiger’ as we all started our pre-race warm up. And yes, you can rightly presume that this got us all pumped up and excited before being taken to the stair case of our inevitable doom.
After roughly 10 minutes of pure up-hill torture we were rewarded with one of the most spectacular views of London but an even bigger reward was finding out we had raised over £1,400 for Shelter.
