ArcelorMittal Orbit Abseil Challenge 2019
Date: Saturday 6 July 2019
Registration fee: £35
Minimum sponsorship: £200
Our most thrilling abseil yet: a 262ft freefall drop over the edge of the ArcelorMittal Orbit - the tallest sculpture in the UK.
The ArcelorMittal Orbit, designed by Turner-Prize winning artist Sir Anish Kapoor is a truly spectacular and unique venue set within Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. It is 22 metres taller than the Statue of Liberty and almost six times taller than the Angel of the North
From the dizzying heights, visitors will experience a show-stopping panorama that includes iconic buildings such as The Shard, Big Ben, The Gherkin, St Paul’s, Canary Wharf and Wembley Stadium and the world-famous sporting venues of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Before stepping over the edge professional abseil instructors will provide a comprehensive safety briefing and all the specialist equipment required for your challenge.
2017 was the first year we organised this event and we were delighted to say that over £15,000 was raised, whilst 2018 saw the team raise in excess of £12,000. Each and every one of our abseilers had an absolutely amazing time.
