Tackle the Tower 2016

On Saturday, Feb. 6, Elk & Elk will join the Cleveland community at the 14th Annual Tackle the Tower Stair Climb Race & Walk. Proceeds from the event benefit Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland.

Participants will take on 37 flights of stairs at the Galleria & Tower at Erieview during either a timed race or Fun Walk. Children aged 10 and under have the option of a 10-floor Kids Climb Fun Run/Walk.

Groups of four can register for male, female and co-ed (2 male, 2 female) team challenges, with awards for the three fastest teams in each division. Teams of local firehouse members will compete for the 5th Annual Fireman’s Team Challenge Traveling Trophy.

Participants will be treated to a pre-race warm up guided by yoga experts, post-race massages, snacks and beverages, giveaways and more. Popular local mascots, including Moondog, Sir CC and Chomps, will join attendees for a dance party.

Pre-registration rates are $25 for the timed stair climb and Fun Walk, and $12 for the Kids Climb. Rates for the adult events increase to $30 on the day of the race, and t-shirts are only guaranteed for those who pre-register.
