About the Lone Star Chapter 30th Annual Tower Climb and Run event

This event, now in its 30th year is THE most unique athletic challenge fundraising event anywhere in San Antonio! Where else can one run 1-mile followed by running the 952 steps to the top of the Tower of the Americas? Answer: only here and only at this once a year event! 

What to expect? 1,200-1,500 individuals, volunteers, teams from across San Antonio and beyond running, climbing in this great event. Followed by our ROCKING party down at the base of the Tower, participants will celebrate with food, music, medals given to top place finishers, and some awesome bragging right among those who conquered the Tower for all those living with cystic fibrosis.

Do the event in one of two ways:

Participants can do the event either COMPETITIVELY (each person runs 1 mile, wears a chip timed bib and races up to the top of the Tower to the Observation Deck/finish line and the chance to place in age and sex category) or NON-COMPETITIVELY (Bib does not have timing chip, no 1 mile run before the ascent and steps are taken at a slower pace).

Sign-up,step up and come out TODAY for a great event and to be a part of history as we run, climb and fight to beat CF at next year’s 30th annual Tower Climb and Run event!  See you all in the winners circle!  


Due to the shortness of the route, competitive run participants will need to run the route twice in order to achieve the mile portion of the event before they enter the Tower
