Race your way to the top of Jumeirah Emirates Towers

Tackle a vertical marathon for a good cause

Think you could race your way up 1,334 stairs? Now’s your chance to prove it with the return of the popular Vertical Marathon.

The fundraising event will take place on Friday, April 29 at 8am, when runners will ascend 1,334 stairs of the Jumeirah Emirates Towers office tower.

Money raised will go to independent humanitarian medical organisation Medicines Sans Frontiers (MSF), which provides emergency medical care around the world. Last year, the marathon raised more than Dhs115,000 for the charity, thanks to 160 eager runners.

To take part, register at www.vm.msf-me.org along with a minimum pledge of Dhs500 for adults, or Dhs350 for children aged 17 and below. The registration deadline is April 27.

For more information, call MSF on 04 345 8177 or email info-msfuae@msf.org
