London Landmarks Skyscraper Challenge

Thank you for your interest in taking on this epic event for Guide Dogs. The London Landmarks Skyscraper Challenge is the first event of its kind in the world! 

Taking place in the heart of London at the Leadenhall Building, affectionately known as the 'Cheesegrater'. This exhilarating, once-in-a-lifetime challenge includes a race up 1,000 steps (that’s roughly three times the height of the leaning Tower of Pisa), then a jaw-dropping 200 metre abseil down the Leadenhall.

Enjoy breath-taking views of London and the electric event atmosphere whilst raising vital funds for children and adults living with sight loss in the UK.
