The Race Organiser set a brand new challenge for high-climbers and thrill-seekers – Run up. Slide down. You versus the clock.
The ArcelorMittal Orbit, the UK’s tallest sculpture was the venue- 455 steps up and one of the best 360-degree views of the city followed by the world’s longest and tallest tunnel slide. Participants raced against the clock to make it up to the top viewing platform; recovered for a souvenir photo before taking the 40-second slide back to the bottom.
The photographs will be used for marketing purposes and to archive the event. Participants were encouraged to share them on their shared on social media feeds.
