The idea of the challenge is awesome... we had tons of fun, but there was some organization issues. You get those kinks out and you will have a even that people will come to every year!

This was an amazing event to be apart of! I understand that because it was the 1st time doing this, the organization was off. Charging people to cheer on their relatives, friends and loved ones was terrible! I couldn't afford to pay for my family to be there so nobody came. That was hard because the support of your friends and family is important in such a challenging event! The goody bags were nice but people like to show off their accomplishments with at least a t-shirt. The staff was VERY friendly and more than willing to help IF they had answers. A secure or at least organized bag check would have been nice. I left my things with they guy giving out the bibs. That was very nice of him but looked sloppy for the organizers. These complaints are not uncommon among the people that did this with me but I would love to come back next year for the challenge! Thank you. Lea Dumag

This event seemed very unorganized and the volunteer staff didn't really seem to know what was going on. I wouldn't pay full price for this event.

This event was horrible and a waste of money. The whole thing was very unorganized and nothing like the event was described. Volunteers didnt know anything and couldnt find most peoples registration. once we finally got our numbers for the race/team challenge...there were NO teams and none of the pre-determined start times even existed- didnt meet a single person or see anyone from the show Survivor like the event described. we couldnt even find the start line... there was no signage or people instructing. once to the start line- it was very uneventful- my friend and I just did our own stair climb workout at SOldier Field. Yes thte stadium was cool, but there were no teams, music wasnt very loud, and there was no organized route for the climb, climbers were just goin gup and down wherever, some people skipping entire sections- this was more like a free-for-all climb! Icing on the cake was that there wasnt even water at the end of the event. there was nothing at the finish line. except the goody bags, that had no shirt or anything... overall a badly ran event. I would go as far as to demand a discount because i really dont know what my $40 went to...

Extremely poor organization - no signage and staff members were screaming at participants - no bag check area - DJ music was blasting too loud in the halls and should've been piped in the stadium speakers - water given out was tap through a water hose - no information on finding out race time - the stair challenge was fun but the event organization was the worst ever!!!

This was absolutely the worst event I have ever attended, not just athletic..worst of any event ever! There was NO organization for picking up your bibs! I saw a volunteer push two participants and another pointing and laughing at people who were walking. People were actually checking themselves in due to useless staff. There was hardly any water throughout the course and none at the finish line. This event had a lot of potential, but I doubt anyone who participated today will ever do it again.

From Our Editors

One of the longest consecutive-stair challenges in America, Storm the Stadium invites racers to tackle a 3,000- or 6,000-stair course that crisscrosses Chicago's beloved U.S. Cellular Field. Groups of 350 racers launch every 10 seconds beginning at 8 a.m., spurred on by pumping music and fueled by samples of food or drink from vendors. Climbers can also opt to purchase more food and alcoholic beverages from the stadium's concession stands. In addition to individual participants, elite racing teams also make the climb; the team with the best average time earns a first-place finish and a thumbs up from a guy who once saw Buzz Aldrin at a mall. Storm the Stadium’s organizers help interested participants raise money for charities of their choice through race pledges; racers may choose to climb for a charity and donate an amount of their choosing.
