With safety being our number one priority, we will continue to monitor and follow current CDC guidelines as well as state/local guidelines. Our climb safe commitment may include enhanced sanitation protocols and spatial distancing.

As the trusted champion of lung health, the American Lung Association closely follows CDC guidance related to COVID-19. The COVID-19 pandemic is changing rapidly and requires evolving strategies to maintain effective public health measures. As such, our COVID-19 safety protocols may shift in response to updated COVID-19 local conditions and local ordinances. When the local community spread referenced on the CDC map is low, exemplified by the green or yellow ranges, vaccines and masks are not required inside or outside event locations. When the community spread level is high, shown in orange, vaccines or a negative COVID test (rapid or PCR) within 48 hours pre-event for indoor events, must be shown. For outdoor events in orange communities, masks are encouraged in high traffic areas, and for indoor events in orange communities, masks are required except when actively climbing or when eating or drinking. The American Lung Association reserves the right to adjust safety protocols, up to seven days prior, based on CDC guidance and/or venue, state, and local ordinances. As always, monitor your symptoms and if you are sick, please stay home.

Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test (rapid or PCR) within 48 hours pre-event based on where required, must be shown. Acceptable forms include photo or hardcopy of the vaccination card or test results. For home rapid tests, please show dated photo of negative test.

There are 1,198 steps (up and down) in Coors Field Stadium.

The average time to climb Coors Field is approximately 40-45 minutes. Climbers can ascend and descend at their own pace. Some run and others walk the course.

Start times will be assigned to teams and then individuals. Within a week of the climb, you will receive an email link to the start times.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your start time.

Look for information on early packet pickup which we highly recommend doing prior to the Climb. On event day, climbers can also pickup their bibs and shirts in front of GATE A.

If for some reason you cannot complete the climb, please go to the closest Coors Field security guard.

With safety being our number one priority, we are continuing to follow current CDC guidelines as well as state/local guidelines. Per CDC guidance, masks are no longer required for fully vaccinated people.


The minimum fundraising requirement is $100 per person. Climbers have until event day to raise the money and if, for some reason they haven’t met the minimum they will be asked to pay it before participating.

The registration fee does not count toward the fundraising minimum. But don’t worry, we are here to help, and we have plenty of fundraising ideas and tips to get you started!

The American Lung Association is dedicated, now more than ever, to providing you with the Climb experience you know and love. As your Trusted Champion of Lung Health, we are also committed to fulfilling our promise of responsible recreation. Therefore, the American Lung Association will continue to closely monitor public local health conditions and CDC guidelines. In order to appropriately protect our participants' well-being and the community at large, the American Lung Association reserves the right to cancel, postpone, or alter the 2022 Fight For Air Climb.

Should the Fight For Air Climb be altered to be a virtual event, your registration will automatically transfer to virtual participation in our Climb Your Way program. Your registration fee, and any funds raised, will transfer with your registration. Participants who raise $100 or more will earn a Fight For Air Climb shirt. Raise $175 or more to qualify for an additional incentive item.

If the Fight For Air Climb is canceled or postponed, funds raised will support the American Lung Association’s mission. You may request to transfer your registration fee to the next event date, but please note that registration fees are non-refundable.

Thanks to the generous support of people like you, the American Lung Association saves lives by fighting for healthy lungs and healthy air. Today, our fight is more important than ever, and 89 cents of every dollar raised by our organization goes directly to education, research and advocacy.
