Capital Group and Cushman & Wakefield are annually arranging the “Race to the height” event supported by World Class. This year the path will lead 250 runners to the top of “Gorod Stolits” skyscraper, which is the highest residential building in the world, for the third time already. Participants will overpass 300 meters height or 1950 steps to reach the top.
Dinara Lizunova, the head of public affairs department at Capital Group, says: “We held the race to the top of “Gorod Stolits” since 2013. This event has become significant for the City’s residents and personnel as well as for athletes of Moscow. Previous time the winner managed to hit the record and to get to the top in less than 10 minutes. We hope that this year the new record will become a history”.
The key point this year is the charity drive. As part of the event, the organizers will raise funds to support United Way charity fund. The fund supports sports initiatives and takes every effort to make sport available for challenged kids. Thus, the whole sum will be transferred to polotnyano-zavodskoy children’s home.

Sergey Riabokobylko, Managing Partner and the Chief Executive Officer at Cushman & Wakefield, says: “Cushman & Wakefield and United Way have been working together on charity sports events for more than 10 years already. We are very pleased to realize our idea at such iconic venue! We express gratitude towards Capital Group for collaboration and hope that more and more of our partners will further join us to support our ideas and efforts!”
250 participants will be on board this year competing on 4 nominations: professionals and non-professionals, each for men and women separately. Those who take first three places in each nomination will get presents from World Class and many other gifts from our partners.
Newrunners project, Chayka clinic and Constellation communication agency perform as the partners of the event.
