Crick Abseil 2018

After two successful abseils in 2017 & 2018 - The Crick Abseil is back for 2019!

Promising to be bigger & better than ever before, be part of this amazing event by joining 300 brilliant supporters facing their fear. The abseil will support the life-saving work of Cancer Research UK and The Crick, with 60K raised in 2018!

Cancer Research UK encourages each participant to raise a minimum of £150 to fund ground-breaking research and prizes will be given to the highest fundraisers.

On the Day

Participants will get to enjoy the views of the capital from the top of the Francis Crick Institute, before 'going over the top': a chance to enjoy London's skyline while suspended in mid-air. Fully trained and experienced instructors will be kitting you up and guiding you every step of the way (up the building and back down). All you have to do is keep your calm and soak up the views. Be sure to bring your friends and family to along to take pictures and cheer you on.

Once you reach the bottom you’ll be able to breathe a sigh of relief, collect your photos and enjoy a post-event glass of bubbly to celebrate your achievement.

How to attend

Enjoy a discounted early bird offer of £20 registration fee (normal price £30) as well as receiving a free t-shirt. Early Bird entries are limited to the first 50 people.
