33rd Annual Lone Star CF Tower Climb & Run

About CF Climb

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

What to expect? 1,500 individuals, volunteers, and teams from across San Antonio and beyond running and climbing in this momentous event. Following our ROCKING survivors party down at the base of the Tower, participants will celebrate with food, music, medals given to top place finishers, and some awesome bragging rights 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 TIMED (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 NON-TIMED (Bib does not have timing chip, no 1 mile run before the climb and steps are taken at your own pace).

Sign-up, step-up, and come out for a magnificent event and to be a part of history as we run, climb, and fight to beat cystic fibrosis at the CF Tower Climb and Run.  See you all in the winner’s circle!

Online registration will close at midnight on January 24, 2018. After it closes, you will only be able to register in person at packet pick-up or on the day of the event.
