On April 15th and 16th The Canada StairClimbing Association attended the Alberta Wilderness Association's Climb amd Run for Wilderness. This amazing event features athletes racing up the Calgary Tower in support of Wildlife, wilderness and fitness. The event was very well attended with well over 1,000 participants attending the weekend event!
We had an amazing booth set out in the lobby of the Calgary Tower. Our wonderful administrative support, Andrea was there to greet people at the booth and explain why they should get involved with the Canada StairClimbing Association.
Our founder, Trevor Folgering Participated in the five hour endurance climb during the event. His efforts paid off as he was able to complete 28 laps of the tower breaking the old record of 25 laps and placing him second overall!
In addition to climbing for five hours, the previous day Trevor raced up the tower in 4 minutes and 53 seconds, placing him second overall.
Check out this video of Trevor Folgering in action on the stairs!
We want to thank Alberta Wilderness Association for allowing us to come down and have a booth at this amazing event! We look forward to coming down next year!!!
