Sportsister Loves: The Gherkin Challenge

Sportsister Loves: The Gherkin Challenge

Oh how we love a different challenge at Sportsister. This June we are going to give The Gherkin Challenge a go, now we know that this sky scraper running is not new, but we still think it’s fab and just imagine the view at the top. Plus it’s all for a great cause, so what’s not to like?


The event running from Saturday 22 June to Sunday 23 June, sees participants race to the top of the iconic building in London, (yes that’s a huge 38 floors!) all to raise money for children’s charity the NSPCC.

Our legs are no doubt going to feel the burn, but the hard work will definitely be worth it as waiting for us at the top is the rare opportunity to take in the most beautiful panoramic views of the capital city from the exclusive 40/30 bar, as well as enjoy a much-deserved glass of bubbly.

Not only this, but what’s also great about this uniquely vertical event is that there is something so everyone can get involved.

For Basecamp Saturday you can bring the kids along to the family morning, complete with Everest Basecamp themed activities for all ages to take part in and enjoy, as well as food, drink, music and entertainment.

Or alternatively, for those more competitive souls, there’s Summit Sunday – a no holds barred race to the top with no distractions.

You also have the chance to enter the challenge as an individual or as part of a team of up to four people (we are seriously considering this option!).

But however you choose to complete it, we reckon it’s going to be a fantastic few days, so make sure you check out their website and get signed up or take a look at our ‘What’s On‘ guide for more information. The deadline for registrations is Monday June 17.

Best of luck and hopefully see you at the top!
