The 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is not a timed event. This is a symbolic climb to honor those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Climbers are encouraged to pace themselves and take breaks when needed.
Our suggestion: respectable attire that is most comfortable for you. Previous climbs have seen everything from full gear wtih SCBAs, military and service uniforms, athletic clothing, custom t-shirts and even themed accessories. We ask that whatever you wear, you make sure you are prepared for the weather and able to climb without an issue.
Spectators are welcome to join us for the event, there will be separate seating roped off and we ask that you do not enter any of the roped off areas for the climb. There is no cost for spectator admission, but we encourage you to show your support with a donation.
Local emergency crews are on-site for the duration of the climb. In the event of an emergency, event volunteers will communicate with emergency personnel.
We do ask that participants access their level of fitness before the climb. If at any point the climb becomes too difficult, we encourage climbers to take a break or stop climbing in order to keep them safe. The climb is not a timed event and participants can climb to any desired level.
Water stations will also be placed around the stadium throughout the climb route, but we suggest that climbers hydrate before the event as well.
All event photos will be shared through _____ within 7 days after the event.
