Unusual atmosphere, the best towerrunners in the world and a lofty goal – this is what distinguishes the race in the Rondo 1, Warsaw. Athletes conquer 836 steps leading to the 37th floor of the building. It is not the finisher medal which is the most important thing they get having crossed the finish line. It is more about satisfaction and…the city’s night panorama seen from 142 metres above the ground.
The Rondo 1 Run Up will be a Towerrunning 120 race again – a status awarded by the Towerrunning World Association. Therefore, some of the leading towerrunners from around the globe are expected to come to Warsaw and battle for the trophy. Nevertheless, there is a bigger reason behind staging the race. The Rondo 1 Run Up has always supported SOS Children’s Villages charity organization and it will be no other way in 2018. Thus far, 180.000 PLN has been raised.
‘We are so proud the race still gets so much liking from the running community. Even more importantly, we manage to support SOS Children’s Villages’, says Piotr Jakóbik, press officer. ‘Hopefully, on February 24th, 2018 the Rondo 1 will be full of positive stair running freaks again. We plan to include a new point in the race day agenda but please let me keep it secret until everything is buttoned up’, he adds.
It is not easy to reach the finish line. Yet, it might be even more difficult to sign up for the race. The participation limit is 500 athletes and the entries are usually sold out in a blink of an eye. Registration starts on 28th November 2017 at 15:00 CET. The entry fee is 40 PLN and all the monies will be given to charity.
The official media partners of the event are: Warsaw Business Journal, Eurobuild CEE, MaratonyPolskie.pl, Remiza.pl and Czwórka.
