What is the London Landmarks Skyscraper Challenge?

The London Landmarks Skyscraper Challenge is the first event of its kind in the world! Created by the Landmarks team at Tommy’s, it will take place in central London at two of the capital’s most iconic skyscrapers - The Cheesegrater and The Gherkin. 

The exhilarating event combines a tower run up 42 floors of The Cheesegrater before either:

  • a jaw dropping 200 metres abseil down The Cheesegrater OR
  • a zipwire from the roof of The Cheesegrater across London's skyline into The Gherkin.

It’s your choice how to get down. Abseil or zipwire?

The once-in-a-lifetime event will take place over two days on 9th &10th September 2023.

Join us and be one of the very first people to take part in our world first event and help raise money to save babies’ lives.
 

Applying to join Team Tommy’s with a Tommy’s charity place 

Tommy’s own and organise the Skyscraper Challenge and are the Official Charity Partner. 

There are two ways to take part in the Skyscraper Challenge:

  • Take on the Tower Run and Abseil Challenge; or 
  • Take on the Tower Run and Zipwire Challenge.

Tommy’s has places in both the Tower Run and Abseil and the Tower Run and Zipwire challenge.

Places in the event are very limited, with only 100 Tower Run and Zipwire places and just 500 Tommy’s Tower Run and Abseil places. There has been a phenomenal response to pre-registration for the Skyscraper Challenge, so apply early for your place to avoid disappointment.
