Open to people aged 10 years and over, the Sydney Tower Stair Challenge is an extreme vertical race encompassing walker and runner categories, so no matter what your fitness level, you can do your bit for charity, one step at a time!

Entries are broken up into 10 categories from the competitive elite runners, individual runner and team runner segments, to the social and novelty ranks including; celebrity challenge, fancy dress, Giant Steps, emergency services, buddies and junior buddies (open to children 8+ with adult supervision), social/walking teams, individual walkers, and schools challenge.

You may wish to cheer and support a loved one, or simply go for the phenomenal sight of hundreds of people pushing their limits in one of Australia’s most inspiring vertical races.
