About the London Landmarks Skyscraper Challenge 2023

The London Landmarks Skyscraper Challenge is the first event of its kind in the world!

This exhilarating event combines a tower run up 42 floors of The Cheesegrater before a jaw dropping 200 metres abseil down The Cheesegrater.

The event is a chance to experience London like never before, with breath-taking views of London’s incredible landmarks, including the Tower of London, St Paul’s and The Shard.

Why run for Cancer Research UK?

CRUK Runner Smiling with Medal

Bridie has taken on the Great North Run six times as part of Team Cancer Research UK. She fundraises in memory of her Dad, who died of bowel cancer. 

My first runs were really hard, but I trained and persevered, and I got better. On the day of my first Great North Run I wore my Cancer Research UK vest with pride, I was so happy to be taking part. The atmosphere was amazing and crossing the finish line I was ecstatic! I was so proud of myself and how far I’d come. Every step is worth it. For every person we lose to cancer, it spurs me on even more to continue fundraising so that we can find a cure.
