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

What You'll Get


The Deal

  • $35 for charity stair-climbing race entry for one (up to $75 value)

Stair-climbers dash up and down some 6,000 steps as U.S. Cellular Field is filled with cheers and rocking music. Afterward, they meet up at Chi Sox Bar and Grill for a post-race party with drink specials. The event benefits Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago, and the Special Olympics.

Climbers leave the starting gate every eight to ten seconds. Some teams will be captained by participants from CBS’s Survivor:

  • The elite wave at 8 a.m.
  • The Survivor Jenny/Artis team at 8:30 a.m.
  • The Survivor RC/Andrea team at 9:30 a.m.
  • The Survivor Mallory/Spencer team at 10:30 a.m.
  • The half climb at 11:30 a.m.

The full distance of the race is 6,000 stairs; the half-climb is 3,000 stairs.

After purchase, participants must register online here. Packet pickup occurs on September 2 in Chicago, and September 3 in Schaumburg.

About Storm the Stadium


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.
