This unique race carries runners up several historic staircases. With three routes to choose from, there is something for nearly any ability, including a 2 mile Sock Hop, the 5K Crazy Crew and the Knee High Hilly Half Marathon.
The two shorter routes are kid and walker-friendly. Well-behaved pets on leash welcome.
On the anniversary of the 9/11/2001 attacks on our country, we remember those who lost their lives on that day and honor those who risk all for their fellow Americans every day. Cannot climb? Bring a chair; come to honor, support & remember. Climb once or as many times as you wish.
Our sister stair climb, Climb Hot Springs, has been on hiatus for two years due to logistics problems. Happily, this autumn race returned in 2021, with a new leadership team. The race is scheduled for the 4th Saturday in September. Cap off the day with an Oktoberfest celebration—it was SO much fun last year!
