I am really excited to announce The Canada Stair Climbing Association's 1st Stair Race of the 2010 season is here! Even thou it is March you can still sign up and register! This is a great way to meet people, have some fun and get some great exercise in! (You do not have to be a elite athlete to participate! This event can be done by anyone!
This is a two day event that anyone can join. (If you cannot make it to the second day thats fine as well!)
Each tier of athletes will get one hour to race up and down the staircase, the exception to this is athletes in Tier One, who will race thirty minutes on the first day.
The top 5 individuals who have climbed the most amount of times ascending and descending in each Tier will race on day two to see who will win the overall title! Day two is more competitive and will feature a MASS START for everyone involved! The Competitive Race features climbers climbing the Chedoke Staircase for only one hour.
