Can’t make packet pickup? No problem! You have two choices:

  1. Have someone else pick it up for you

  2. Check in at the registration area on the day of the event.

    Keep in mind that you’ll carry your swag bag with you on your climb if you don’t get it early!


What time does the event start?
The event starts promptly at 6:30 a.m., so please ensure to allow enough time to park and check in prior to that time.

When do I need to register by?
Early registration ends on August 23rd. This allows us to guarantee t-shirt sizes and ensure they arrive in time for packet pickup prior to the event.

After early registration has ended, the entry fee will rise to $40 and t-shirt sizes will no longer be guaranteed, and will be available first-come, first-served at packet pickup.

When will I get my t-shirt?
For those who have pre-registered, information regarding packet pickup will be emailed out as well as listed on this website. You’ll receive a swag bag with wrist band and t-shirt, along with other goodies from the sponsors.

Can I register on the day of the event?
Yes, however a t-shirt is not guaranteed, and you may miss the beginning of the event. We highly recommend registering for the event prior to its start time.

Can children attend the event?
Children must be 16 & older to climb the stairs, and may not be carried on the stairs during the event, however they may participate in the concourse walks. Child care is not provided, however each location will have a designated area for children with their guardians.
