2013 USA Championship Race Confirmed!

It’s official! Our first annual USA championship stair race will be held on March 2nd, 2013 in Las Vegas Nevada, in the Stratosphere Tower!

The American Lung Association brokered the deal with the Stratosphere folks to have this special invitation only race for the top 50 male and female climbers in the USA.

Other people can of course race or climb in this fundraising event, but the competitors will get a special start before the main pack, so they have a clear stairwell to get the best time possible.

All 2013 USA stair races will be counted in the scoring system to determine the best USA racers for the year, but this one will carry extra points since it is the official USA championship race. The winner of this race may or may not end up being the overall USA champion stair racer by the end of the year, but even if they are not, they will still earn bragging rights for winning one of the tallest and most competitive races in the country.

    When is the main season for stair racing, and what time of the year is considered off-season? Thanks.

  2. Stair climbing is definitely an intense workout but I really like doing it. I happened to come upon your site because I had just uploaded a stair climbing video of my own on YouTube.com, but purely because I’m documenting my weight loss and showing the different exercises I’m doing. I’m intrigued that stair climbing is recognized as a sport, I didn’t realize that it could be!

    I have a Facebook page entitled THE GOAL Series where I post my transformation progress, fitness motivation, funny fitness, as well as alternative fitness ideas. I’m no official reporter or sponsor, but if it is alright with you, I would like to post this on my Facebook page and give ideas to my growing group of subscribers.

    Good luck to you all!
