The current height leader in the world of Yorkshire stairclimbing is the Arts Tower, weighing in at a hefty 20 storeys. It’s part of the University of Sheffield, and a building that Andy and Gary know all too well having participated in its first event earlier this year. The GYSC will trounce this though with a whopping 32 storeys on the November 24th!
For a mere £2.50 (all money raised goes to the Yorkshire Cancer Centre) we’re giving you the opportunity to come and match the Arts Tower Stairclimb by heading to Bridgewater Place and hitting the first 20 storeys, it’s all kicking off this Thursday only at 7:00pm! It’s very rare for access like this to be granted in BWP because it’s a residential tower, so it’s definitely an opportunity not to be missed.
This event isn’t going to be timed, so if you’re interested in hitting it as hard as you can and seeing how you fare against your other competitors, make sure you’re wearing a stopwatch and find other competitors on the G-Rex Fitness facebook page. If you’re a bit of a twitter fiend, you can use the twitter hashtag #GYSC as an alternative.
All participants will be required to complete a pre-activity readiness questionnaire (PAR-Q) before participating, don’t worry though we’ll give you these on the day.
We’re only granting 30 ‘lucky’ people the opportunity to access this warm up event to the GYSC, so if you’re interested then fire us an email on GYSC@g-rexfitness.com so you don’t miss out, first come first served!
It’d be rude not to come down and test out your stairclimbing legs, so who’s up for the challenge?!
