Skyrun in the SkyTower Romania

RPHI organized the first edition of SKYRUN on 7th of December 2013. 650 runners aged between 18 and 60 years took part at the biggest tower-running event in Romania which was a great success. Supporters and media people cheered for the participants, who had to climb 680 stairs (119 m altitude difference) starting from the ground floor to reach the finish line in the 34th floor. Individual electronic chips were used for time measuring, the fastest runner finished in 2 minutes and 55 seconds.

The event promoted the importance of a healthy balanced lifestyle and has been dedicated to the activity of the non-governmental charity organization “HOSPICE Casa Sperantei”. HOSPICE provides palliative care services for terminally ill persons and supports the services at a national level through educational programs. The organizers are very happy to donate EUR 20.000 to HOSPICE  for the completion of a palliative care center in Bucharest raised through the SKYRUN-event.
