To save time on Climb Day, pre-registration is available at Packet Pickup on Friday, February 16, 2024 from 9:00 AM 5:00 PM at the American Lung Association office (851 Outer Road, Orlando, FL 32814). By picking up your Climb Packet, which includes your race bib with timing chip and event t-shirt, you’ll bypass the Registration Line on Climb Day and be able to start warming up sooner.

A representative from a team may pick up packets for any team member who has met or exceeded their $100 fundraising requirement.

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. Climbers have until event day to raise the money. If for some reason they haven't met the minimum they will be asked to pay it before participating.
