Eureka Climb in Melbourne on 14 November

The Eureka Climb is a charity stair climb event up Melbourne’s iconic Eureka Tower. People of all ages and fitness levels walk and climb up the Eureka Tower to help raise much needed funds for Whitelion and Interplast Australia and New Zealand so they can continue their great work and help to ‘rebuild young lives’. This year the event will feature an Elite Race (for a select 20 males and 20 females), to kick off the day at 8am on Sunday 14th November 2010. Competitors will go up in 20 second intervals over a 15 minute wave.

Travelscene American Express have kindly donated prizes for the fastest male and female up the tower on event day. These winners will each receive return airfares to New York, transfers and 5 nights’ accommodation. Event organizers are in the process of investigating the possibility of the winners receiving automatic entry into the Empire State Building Run Up. *terms and conditions apply please visit for more details.
