I have been getting a lot of people asking me which Tier they should race in for our race on March 13th 2011.
I will go over our Tier system and how you decide which Tier to go into.
Tier 1 - Beginner stair climber. This is for novices only. Someone who has never experienced or completed a stair climb race before. He or she may have been training for 3 months, 6 months or even a year, but has never really completed a stair race and is not sure what to expect.
In the event the Tier one athletes complete 25 stories or one time up the Delta Hotel stair well.
Tier 2 - Intermediate Stair Climbers - Someone that has completed ANY kind of endurance race, whether that is finishing a 5km race, or a stair race with us, or any other stair race around the world. You must have finished some type of endurance race or have been training for minimum of six months in order to get into this Tier. You can also enter into Tier 2 by finishing in the TOP 3 in Tier 1.

Tier 3 - Advanced Stair Climbers - Any athlete that has completed any stair race in the world and has finished top 10 in their respective age category. Or anyone from Tier 2 that finishes TOP 3.
