Join us for the 8th Annual Urban Mountain Challenge on Saturday, January 29, 2022 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 garage 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 For Those Who Would (www.forthosewhowould.com). For Those Who Would is a certified 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity based out of Richmond, KY with a mission to support individuals prevented from participating in athletic and physical recreational activities due to debilitating injuries or chronic diseases.
PACKET PICKUP will be held on race morning (1/30/21) from 7:15am-8:30am at Proof Fitness (230 West Main Street, Lexington, KY 40507, 7th Floor) Our post race activities, food/drink and awards will also be presented at Proof Fitness.
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. We expect the Climb Big Blue to start at about 9am from the lobby of the 5th/3rd "Big Blue" Building.
