Climb up a JLT tower in this mammoth fitness challenge

Can you make it up 67 flights of stairs?

Fancy yourself as a bit of a mountaineer? Well this could be right up your street.

Gulf for Good’s stair climb is back this Friday July 6 at 8am, and it’s the closest thing you’ll get to mountain climbing in Dubai.

The stair climb is an intense workout up 67 floors to the top of Almas Tower in JLT – and it’s not for the fainthearted.

Described by Adrian Hayes, Everest climber and World Record holder, as "the best mountain training available when you can't get to the mountains", this is a physical test and fabulous training for any prospective mountain challenges.

The climb is free and open to everyone over the age of 16. All you need to do to secure your place is to email your RSVP to Jill at or call and save your spot by midnight on Wednesday July 4.

You’ll need to bring plenty of water (obviously), hiking shoes or good trainers and cool, comfortable clothes.

Gulf for Good is also a UK-registered charity that organises exciting adventure challenges around the world inspiring people to do something unusual. Participants raise funds, which are then donated to handpicked charities in the region where the challenge is held.

A multi-national Board of Governors comprising respected business and government figures supervises the charity. All are volunteers, including the Charity’s Solicitors and Auditors.

We think it’s about time we got those knees up.
Free. Fri Jul 6, 8am-9am. Almas Tower, Cluster G, JLT (04 368 0222).
