10 Story Time Climb Challenge

How fast can you climb a 10-story building AFTER running all of Chukchansi Park steps, up and down a 6 story circular Garage and run up and back over 70' Urban Hill? Well lets find out! We have installed a special timing mat at the bottom of our 10-story Grand to measure how long it will take YOU to make it to the top! Last year it was done in a blazing speed of 1:29:37 for Women and 1:06:91 for Men. BEAT that time and you receive a free entry to our 2025 Urban Run and be crowned King & Queen of the GRAND CLIMB!

Golden Bib

We want to honor our prior participants, so any current year participant that has completed any of our prior year Urban Runs will receive a 'Golden' Bib to wear during the event!  In addition, their name will appear on the back on the event shirt.  Must register by March 22, 2024 for the Golden Bib.
