Water stations will be located along the route and Climbers will be permitted to carry a plastic water on the route. Guests may be permitted to bring one factory-sealed, clear plastic bottle of unflavored water per person. Learn more about Comerica Park’s policies.

Climbers must be at least seven 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 venue regulations and to ensure your safety and that of your child, child-toting 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 following event weekend and details will be provided to winners for pick up. More details to be announced closer to the event.
