Step up to the challenge and join proud sponsor Move One on the 13th April, 2012 for the 10th anniversary of this exciting event. A physical challenge for a great cause, the Vertical Marathon is a stair climb up the 52 floors of the Jumeirah Emirates Towers, in aid of Médecins Sans Frontières’ (MSF) humanitarian work.
