Countdown: The Mayfair Park and Tower Race

15 Jun 2009 by Mark Caswell

There’s just a few days before Business Traveller takes part in The Mayfair Park and Tower Race. Organised by Hilton’s Galvin at Windows restaurant in London, the event has so far raised £22,000 for charity Galvin’s Chance.

The charity is the brainchild of Alex Galvin and Fred Sirieix, general manager of the restaurant, and working with the Hilton in the Community Foundation it aims to give disadvantaged teenagers in the UK the chance to train and work in some of London’s finest hotels.

The race consists of a run around Hyde Park followed by a “sprint” up the 28 floors of the Hilton on Park Lane, and Business Traveller’s Felicity Cousins and Mark Caswell will be taking part in the race alongside celebrities including chef Michel Roux Jr and Olympic medalist Roger Black.

The Mayfair Park and Tower Race takes place on Wednesday June 17, and we’ll be updating readers on how we get on later in the week.
