The Annual Mini Stair Race at the Cornwall Center was a huge success and many people came out to race up and down the stairs to test their body and see how many laps they could complete in five minutes!
The event started at 9 am, with the Founder of The Canada StairClimbing Association welcoming everyone and introducing the sport of stairclimbing to the participants.
We had many sponsors who helped make this event possible. Our title sponsor Gold's Gym provided great prizes for the overall winners including a six month membership. Here is Michale Lindenbach, owner of Gold's Gym Regina addressing the crowd:
With the formalities out of the way it was time to rumble on the stairs! After a quick debriefing the race was on!
Participants raced each other on the stairs for five minutes at a time. Tope three winners advanced to the finals which comprised of 25 laps of the stairs!
