After you Climb, be sure to stick around on the second level deck to celebrate your accomplishment and grab a finisher medal, take a photo in front of the legendary Buc’s pirate ship, visit our variety of vendors, enjoy free beer samples from Pepin Distributing (21+) and take in the Climb Under the Lights!

Your Climb time will be available after you finish, and we will announce details on our awards ceremony after the event.

Climber Etiquette

To ensure the safety of all climbers, please be courteous while climbing. If you need to pass, please make sure to pass on the concourse.

Water Stations

Water stations are located throughout Raymond James Stadium with individual water bottles as well as the water fountains. Please feel free to bring water bottles as we are trying to stay green. Water fountains will be on to refill your bottles to limit our impact on recycling. Concession will also be available for purchase!

Safety Procedures

Trained medical personnel will be located throughout the venue in case you need assistance. Volunteers will also be available at the water stations.


Climbers must be at least five years old to participate. Any climber under the age of 18 must climb with an adult (age 18 years or older) and must not be left alone under any circumstances. For adults who climb at a faster pace, please note that your child may not be left unattended while you climb, so make arrangements accordingly. Due to stadium regulations and to ensure your safety and that of your child, child-toting and babywearing is not allowed.


We appreciate the hard work and dedication of every climber and team who has raised money to fight lung disease. Participants and teams who have gone above and beyond will be recognized. Awards will be announced event weekend and details will be provided to winners for pick up. More details to be announced closer to the event.
