Celebrating its 17th year in San Francisco, the vertical race will be back in the stairwells of the iconic 555 California Street Building. Climbers can once again race up the 1,197 stairs to the top of one of the tallest buildings in the Bay.
Outdoor Urban Climb
Prefer to climb outdoors? Our Urban Climb is back by popular demand and will run simultaneously with the Building Climb on March 4th, 2023. In this version climbers will participate in an exploration of the many beautiful outdoor staircases in the City by the Bay. You and your team (and even your dog!) can get outside and race up stairways throughout town as you raise money for the American Lung Association.
Want to participate, but can’t make it to San Francisco on March 4th? If you are registered as a virtual “Climb Your Way” participant, you can pick when and how you want to “climb” (run, walk, swim, lift weights, bike, etc.) as well as the distance you want to travel.

Please note there is a $100 fundraising minimum for all climbers to participate on March 4, 2023
