Distance running


Entries Now Open with a 20% early bird discount until 1st February 2019

Total Motion Events are pleased to announce our collaboration with 'Young Entrepreneurs in Property' (YEP) to bring you a brand new stair climb event in support of LandAid, the property industry charity working to end youth homelessness in the UK.

On April 11th 2019 runners will be taking on a single ascent of Chapter Spitalfields, London’s tallest purpose built student accommodation building, owned and operated by US multifamily housing provider Greystar.  Chapter Spitalfields is just a stone's throw from the City of London with the climb taking place from the ground floor up to the 33rd floor where you will be greeted with panoramic views across London accompanied by a celebratory drink and medal.

Participants can enter the event via YEP and commit to raising £100 for LandAid, or alternatively enter directly through Total Motion with no charitable commitment.

Can spectators come along?
Spectators are more than welcome, but sadly cannot wait at the top of the tower.

Can I volunteer?
Events such as these cannot take place without the very kind help of volunteers. If you are coming along to spectate, why not get involved too? We will be offering a free single climb race entry to anyone willing to volunteer. Please contact us if you would like to help.
