REGISTRATION IS CLOSED - HOPE TO SEE YOU FOR 2017!

Join the Challenged Athletes Foundation for a coveted guaranteed entry to the 2016 Empire State Building Run-Up Presented by Marmot. Registration is open!

Everyone deserves to feel the power of crossing a finish line.

Money raised will help the Challenged Athletes Foundation® (CAF) provide individuals with physical challenges with the tools necessary to find success in sports — and in life.

Join challenged athletes, able-bodied athletes, celebrities and pros as they climb the 1,576 steps of the iconic Empire State Building. The 2016 Empire State Building Run-Up Presented by Marmot is an event unlike any other!
