What to expect

Returning for its third year of running, spinning and climbing, Guy's Urban Challenge 2017 is here...bigger and better than ever!

Join us for the thrilling 'urban triathlon' experience where you will run 2.5km around Guy's Hospital and spin 15km on a state-of-the-art Wattbike before climbing 29 floors to the top of the worlds tallest hospital building, Guy's Tower.

Want to take on the challenge with friends and colleagues, try the relay option where you can split the event between two or three participants. One will run, one will spin and the other will climb to Urban Challenge victory.

Or take on the tower by itself in our stair climb option, starting in the event village and heading straight up the 648 steps of Guy's Tower. 

After conquering the challenge, enjoy spectacular views of London and a well-deserved celebratory party with unique finisher medals, giveaways and more.

All money raised will go towards helping patients at Guy's and St Thomas' or Evelina London Children's Hospital. Find out how donations have made a difference
