  • 11-Year Challenge - the number of steps is up to you!

The average time to climb the Lynn Family Stadium steps is 20 minutes.

For the first time the Louisville Climb will offer the Stadium Stroll, an alternative for individuals requiring a less-demanding participant option, with a flat route on the main level of the Lynn Family Stadium. Participants who may prefer this option include:

  • Individuals recovering from an injury
  • Individuals preferring less strenuous participation
  • Parents with infant in a stroller

Participants choosing this option:

  • Register as for Stadium Stroll
  • Will be directed to alternate route.

Start times will be 9:00 a.m. for regular participants and 10:30 for the firefighter challenge. You will receive an email link to the start times. You will also receive a "wave number".

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your start time. This gives you time to check your gear and warm up.

Check-in and registration will be at Gate 6. Donations may also be turned in at this area.

If for some reason you cannot complete the climb, someone at the nearest water station can assist you.


The minimum fundraising requirement is $100 per person. 11-Year Challenge participants must raise $300. Climbers have until event day to raise the money. If climbers have not met the minimum, they will be asked to pay the balance 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!
