City Three Peaks
OktoberFest London 2015


Welcome to the competitions page, where you'll find free tickets, prizes and giveaways to some of London's most exciting and entertaining experiences.


City Three Peaks

The Gherkin or 30 St Mary Axe, 30 St Mary Axe, London, EC3V 1LP

Tube: Liverpool Street Station, Aldgate Station


Dates: Monday 7th September 2015


Billed as "the most ambitious charity fundraising event in the City of London's history", City Three Peaks challenges 40 thrill-seekers to abseil down three of the capital's most iconic buildings: The Gherkin - abseiled down for the first time ever, The Leadenhall Building (also known as 'The Cheesegrater') and 20 Fenchurch Street (aka 'The Walkie Talkie'). Each tower will be descended one after the other and all three buildings add up to a combined height of 1,916ft - that's double that of The Shard. It's not just about adrenaline and abseiling. The aim is to raise a staggering 4 million for The Outward Bound Trust, The Royal Navy and The Royal Marines Charity - given The Descent of The Shard abseil back in September 2012 raised 2.8 million, that's quite a lofty sum to raise in just a few hours. Sponsored by CLIF bar, America's favourite energy bar, each of the participants will be supplied with energy bars and gels to keep them going.

Furthermore, CLIF have partnered with City Three Peaks to give away a hamper packed with CLIF bar goodies and VIP entry for two to the Sky Garden on the day of the event.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer the following question:

What's the total distance of the abseil?

A: 1,000ft
B: 1,5000ft
C: 1,916ft

Send your answer to with 'City Three Peaks' in the subject line by midday on Thursday 3rd September 2015. Please also include your full name, contact telephone number and postal address in the body of the email. The hamper will be posted to the winner and their name 1 will be added to the guest list at The Sky Garden on Monday 7th September 2015.
