Take The Stairs Challenge 2013
26th October 2012
Sheffield's tallest stair run! February is National Heart Month.
Rock Up In Red and sign up for this incredible event guaranteed to bring a glow to your cheeks. You will be helping the British Heart Foundation (BHF) to raise urgently needed sponsorship to help local people with heart disease. Take The Stairs is a run with a difference. Challenge yourself to run to the top of the University of Sheffield's Arts Tower, standing a massive 78 metres high, that's 20 floors of steps between the pavement and breathless glory as you reach the top. At the finish you will be able to cool down with a unique opportunity to take in the stunning views of Sheffield from the roof. The event will start with a popular mass warm up by local gym instructors, then it's over to the stairs that lead directly to the top of the newly refurbished Arts Tower. Runners will be set off at intervals for safety and overtaking is allowed. Challenge yourself to make it to the top no matter how long it takes and you will be a hero in everyone's eyes. For the ultra competitive athletes, bring your stop watch and time yourself for ultimate bragging rights. Take the Stairs is open to anyone over 16 who consider themselves to be up for the challenge. We don't just want you to raise your heart rate though. The British Heart Foundation is working hard to raise urgently needed funds and hopes that you will get as much sponsorship as you can to help save lives. With 40 flights of stairs why not see if you can raise £40 or aim for £390, that's a pound per step to make a real difference! You can set up a justgiving page or use the BHF sponsor form.
