It’s all about the climb…. Vertical Race at Media One Hotel

running-stairs-cartoonAre you ready to make The Climb at Media One Hotel? That’s exactly what the Vertical Race is all about. It’s an exhilarating, effective, marathon-inspired, calorie-burning stair climbing race in the Media One Tower on Saturday 17th January 2015.

It is open to individuals and teams with pre registration a must. The race itself starts from ground level with a run through the car park up to parking level 7; this is approximately one kilometer and supporters will line the way to give you the encouragement needed for the next stage. It is then time to change to the stairs, all 700+, and race from level 7 all the way to level 42 where the finish line will be waiting with a much needed water station and spectators to witness your success.

The race for individuals starts at 10am with an entry fee of AED 99 each; however the race is also open to teams of four in a relay format, starting at 11.30am and the entry fee will be AED 399 per team.

If you are interested just log on to and race packs will be provided for collection prior to the race. Online registration for the event will close on Sunday 11th January 2015.

There will be prizes to the value of AED 20,000 for the winners, based on and awarded to the 3 top men, the 3 top women and 3 top teams. The result list will be posted and all times achieved will be sent to the runners via Premier Online who is our official timing partner.

Felix Hartmann, Director of Operations of Media One Hotel stated, “We are looking forward to preparing and participating in the M1 Race. For the individuals it will be more serious and a challenge for personal bests, but for the team event we are looking for corporate companies to start training and hopefully pitch themselves against some of their rivals! But we are also happy for anyone to create a team to participate if they don’t think they can manage the feat alone. We actually have a Media One team in training and I am the coach, though they definitely need a little more practice at the moment, but we will soon be challenging one of our hotel competitors!

Once the race is over we are providing shower facilities and a special deal for all participants for LaidBack on8 for lunch with a couple of drinks and of course use of all the facilities – pool, sauna and steam room – to relax those aching muscles and build stamina. This will also be the location of the Award Ceremony.

Make sure you don’t miss this opportunity to capture a great result and it’s still supposed to be a fun event. Log onto for more details
