ArcelorMittal Orbit Abseil Challenge 2020
Date: Saturday 4 July 2020
Registration fee: £35
Suggested 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.
Over 3 years this challenge has helped to raise in excess of £35,000 for the charity. Join us in 2020 so we can hopefully take this past £40,000
