Climb Big Blue (Military/Public Service Personnel)
Downtown Double Challenge (Military/Public Service Personnel)
About This Activity
Join us for the 4th Annual Urban Mountain Challenge on Saturday, January 28, 2017 at 8:30am at the Big Blue Building in downtown Lexington.
This year we will have two challenges entitled "Climb Big Blue" (A stair climb of the 31 story Big Blue Building) and "The Downtown Double Challenge" (A five story parking helix climb followed by a climb of the Big Blue Building).
The event will feature chip timing, tech shirts (while supplies last) and overall & age group awards. Climbers will be sent off individually based on seeding. There will also be a special Military/Public Service Division for our military/police/fire personnel.
Our race benefits the On The Move Art Studio (http://www.onthemoveartstudio.org/). On The Move Art Studio is a nonprofit, mobile art-room created in a refurbished vintage trailer that travels to underserved neighborhoods and hosts free arts classes for kids. A portion of each climbers registration fee will be donated to On The Move plus 100% of additional funds donated by climbers.
PACKET PICKUP will be held on race morning (1/28/17) from 7-8:30am at the Big Blue Financial Building (250 West Main St., Lexington, Kentucky 40507).
The Downtown Double will begin promptly at 8:30am. Once those climbers have finished we will begin the Climb Big Blue participants going up the stairwell one every 20 seconds. We will communicate your individual start times to you prior to the race.
