London TowerAthlon 2014


Friday, September 19, 2014 - 09:00 Broadgate Tower

On 19 September, over 200 property professionals completed their adrenalin pumping assault on the Broadgate Tower as part of this new challenge event. 

In teams of three, each competitor undertook a physical challenge that tested their speed, strength and courage. One thrill seeker abseiled down the 539ft tower, another ran up the 877 stairs (35 floors) while the third cycled the furthest they could in 10 minutes on the Plaza grounds.  

The event has so far raised an amazing £30,000, with proceeds split jointly with the Worshipful Company of Chartered Surveyors.

The full results results are below, in addition to the short list of winners.

You can view all the photos on Flickr (a small selection are below), read all the tweets and see if you can spot yourself in the videos from the day. Estates Gazette Deputy Editor Sam McClary even made a video of her own descent. 

If you took part in the abseil, pictures can now be purchased online - a great memento of your achievement. And PurePix will donate 10% of the price of each picture sold to us.
