Race Day Sign Up between 6:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
Open start time format so you begin when your ready to...just tell the timers and off you go. From 6:30 a.m. till 10 a.m. start time.
Course Description: This is an all paved stair case race called the INCLINATOR. 36 Flights of the toughest outdoor staircase that Grand Rapids has to offer. 36 Flights = the Famous INCLINE that goes straight up the side of Pikes Peak Mountain in Colorado Springs so we thought it would be a GREAT Old Fart Challenge to attempt the INCLINE here in Grand Rapids. 75 Flights get you in the "Hall of Fame" Challenge! For those who really want to go extreme...there is the INSANE-A-NATOR! 100 Flights. Your finishing number of flights will determine your finisher awards
What the Stairs will FEEL like:
after 6 flights your legs start shaking
10 flights = the Stratosphere in Las Vegas
11 flights = the Empire State Building
14 flights = the Sears Tower
15 flights = the World Trade Center
17 flights = the Shanghai Tower in China
20 flights = the Burj Khalifa in Dubia
21 flights = Mike from Toledo* (a historic moment happened in 2020 as Big Mike completed 36 Flights!!!)
36 flights = the INCLINATOR!!!! ***this is the most Big Mike ever made so if you come out and run tell yourself "This is for Mike when you get to 36!"
50 flights = the PUNISHER!!!
75 flights = The Hall of Fame!!!
100 Flights = The INSANE-A-NATOR!
