The race to the top of Melbourne’s tallest building is on again, with participants from all over Australia set to raise funds for two charities on Sunday 16 November.

One of the highest vertical races in the world, the annual Eureka Climb, challenges participants with 88 levels and 300 metres of vertical elevation.

The Eureka Climb involves participants walking, running or climbing the 1,642 stairs to the Skydeck – the highest observation deck in the Southern Hemisphere.

Participants can enter individually or create a team of four. The crowd favourite – The Emergency Service Challenge – will be even more competitive this year with CFA, Ambulance Services and Victoria Police teams even more committed to catching last year’s winners Melbourne Fire Brigade. Last year’s event raised over $250,000.

This fundraiser raises money for disadvantaged young people at home and abroad for charity partners Whitelion and Interplast Australia and New Zealand.

Registration for the event is now open and climbers can register online at www.eurekaclimb.com.au.
