The Broadgate Tower Run Up is the first event in The UK which is not tied to one charity, but offers competitors the opportunity to race for a charity of their choice or compete as a personal challenge alongside the world’s best runners.

The 2018 Vertical World Circuit will launch in just under two weeks in Seoul, South Korea on May 13 with the Lotte World Tower International Sky Run, the highest race on the circuit.
