Event notes


The Rendezvous Tower Challenge is for all levels of fitness. You don't need to be super fit to enter.
A big part of an event like this is the socialising. So before and after your climb, relax with your friends, family, and workmates. You can be competitive as you want or just cruise in your own style. This event is all about you moving at a pace that suits you and enjoying the morning out.


Starting from Level 2(Floor 1) and finishing on Level 20(Floor 19); 18 floors, 309 steps. You will be ascending clockwise and there is a handrail for assistance.


This event will run from the Rendezvous Hotel Christchurch car park located on Level 2(Floor 1). The entrance to the car park is from Gloucester Street via the vehicle access ramp.
