All participants will receive a tech t-shirt, medal, sticker, admission into Reunion Tower and it's amazing 360-degree views - which normally costs $17 all by itself - aid stations, food, music in the stairwells, medical support, etc.

If you can't join us in Dallas, we've got you covered with the vert-ual stair climb, which you can do from anywhere in the world.

The event will benefit participants - who will get stronger, fitter, and happier - along with a number of non-profit organizations.

With a field of world-class athletes competing for points on the Towerrunning World Association's International Tour to inspire you, incredibly low entry fees, and an amazing atmosphere that other stair climbs with their one-climb-only formats just can't match, it's probably the best stair climb value in the entire United States!

But registration is limited, so register now to guarantee yourself a spot and then put the word out to your friends to come join you!
