PLN 26,974 raised for sick children
The money raised was donated to donated to the SOS Children's Villages Association in Poland
POLAND The 37th floor of the Rondo 1 office building in Warsaw was a challenge for those who took part in the eighth Run to the Top sports and charity event held on February 24th.

This year 638 runners entered the race who as usual included amateurs, professionals and celebrities. Almost PLN 27,000 was raised and donated to the SOS Children's Villages Association in Poland. As usual members of the fire-brigade were the first to start running up the stairs to the 37th floor of the Rondo 1 office building. They ran up the full distance in mixed gender teams of two people dressed in full fire fighting gear. Prior to the final run there were qualifying heats and in the end Piotr Łobodziński, the world tower running champion, won the event for the fourth time. From the very start, he had been the favourite to win. He ran the fastest in the qualifying heats with a 4.5-second lead over his nearest rival, Christian Riedel (Germany), who last beat him at this event two years ago. And the final run resulted in no changes in the top placings with Piotr Łobodziński came first, Christian Riedl came second and Stefan Stefina (Slovakia) taking the podium for the first time in third place.

The eighth Run to the Top was also attended by representatives of the real estate industry. Among the women the fastest times were recorded by Agnieszka Szymańska (Colliers), Monika Kujawińska (CBRE) and Martyna Lang (Ernst & Young), while among the men the fastest were Tomasz Giedronowicz (Volkswagen Financial Services), Piotr Śliż (CBRE) and Norbert Skumiał (Colliers).

Unimpressed by those who wanted to run up the stairs, Krystian Herba from Rzeszów decided to complete the event on his bicycle and reached the 37th floor in just over 18 minutes. This is the 14th building this world record holder has ridden to the top of and the next buildings he is to attempt will be the Shanghai Tower. The Run to the Top of Rondo 1 was included in the Towerrunning Tour 2018 – the most important series of stair-running races organised by the Towerrunning World Association. The event has traditionally been held to raise money for the SOS Children's Villages in Poland Charity. This year, PLN 26,974 was collected. The Media patrons of the event included Radio Czwórka, ‘Eurobuild CEE’, MaratonyPolskie.pl, Remiza.pl and the ‘Warsaw Business Journal’. Rondo 1 was built by Hochtief Development and put delivered in 2006.
