This event is about releasing your competitive spirit, pushing yourself against others – and yourself. No medals, No T-shirt, just pure clean – and environmentally friendly fun.

We plan on repeating The Great Stair Challenge every season – so you can see if you can improve over time. We will have special awards for most improved participants, and we’ll track record holders for the course.

Current Course Record

We’ll be honest, the course consists of stairs, lots of stairs, over 1300 steps in all. There are beautifully crafted sculptures and decorations along the way, and if you need to take a quick break awesome views as well. Here are some pics from the course:
