Charity race up 36 floors at The Hilton Dubai The Walk

Raise money for charity while testing your physical prowess

When was the last time you walked up a flight of stairs – let alone raced?

In Dubai, we’re prone to taking the lift, and if you’re guilty of a touch of laziness then this is the perfect opportunity to redeem yourself.

The Hilton Tower race, at Hilton Dubai Jumeirah, kicks off on Saturday October 20, where you can put your fitness to the test with a clamber up 730 steps (36 floors) – at top speed.

The event is being held for the seventh consecutive year to raise money for the Rashid Centre For Disabled, and you can play your part.

If you do complete the challenge, you’ll be rewarded with stunning views across the Arabian Gulf and a post event celebratory drink at rooftop bar, Pure Sky Lounge.

Created in 1994, Rashid Centre for Disabled serves the purpose of developing children's abilities to function and learn within their environments, and to develop maximum independence.

The race is open to the public and last year’s winning time to beat is three minutes and 46 seconds.

The event kicks off at 7:30am and is followed by a healthy breakfast on the 35th floor, once the participants have completed the challenge. If that’s not an incentive then we don’t know what is.

“The event has been extremely successful over the last couple of years, and we hope that this year, it will be even better,” said Alexander Musch, Hotel Manager of Hilton Dubai Jumeirah. “Hilton has a long history of giving back to the local community and we thank all those who are joining us in our efforts to raise awareness and funds for the Rashid Center for Disabled.”
