Chicago CF Climb 2019



About CF Climb

Online Registration is now closed. Day of registration will be available on Sunday, September 22nd at Guaranteed Rate Field. We can't wait to see you there!

CF Climb is a unique, challenging fitness event in which participants climb stairs in a test of endurance. Whether climbing to improve timing or to simply reach new heights, this event is a great way to spend the day with co-workers, friends and family while adding tomorrows for people living with cystic fibrosis.

This year we are thrilled to announce our new location, Guaranteed Rate Field! This year’s event will have you climbing the 100 level of the stadium, racing through the aisles from foul pole to foul pole. You will have the option to climb 2200 stairs for our traditional climb or challenge yourself to 4400 steps and complete the route twice.

EVERY person who attends our Climb event MUST register in order to enter the stadium. We invite family and friends of climbers to join us as part of our cheer squad! Every attendee, both spectator and participant will need to be registered and sign a waiver prior to entry into the stadium. Event entry will not be granted to anyone who has not registered for the event and signed the waiver.
