CF Stadium Climb

This event is one of the most unique athletic and fundraising challenge anywhere in the Twin Cities. Who else offers you the chance to climb over 2,000 steps at Target Field, ending with music, food and drinks on the Roof Deck? Only the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation! 

We've made incredible progress in the fight against cystic fibrosis, but we still have a long way to go. Far too many lives are being cut short by this devastating disease. You can help by joining us September 24 for the CF Climb for a Cure!

General Climb Details 
Excited to climb with your team and hang out at Target Field? 

The "General Climb" is for all participant ages & abilities. Climb the lower bowl of Target Field at your own pace! The General Climb will start at 12:15 PM, so don't miss this start time! After climbing those 2,000 steps, join the party on the Roof Deck for food, beverages, and the Twins game! 

Challenge Course Details 
Are you looking for a real challenge? Then this course is for you! Double up your step count by climbing the lower bowl twice while timed! 

Participants will climb the lower bowl of Target Field, then complete 3 fitness stations as active rests on your way back through the concourse! Once you work your way back to the start line, climb the lower bowl again to really step it up for CF! This course will be timed, so race against the clock or your friends to see how well you can do! 

This climb will start at 11:45 AM and take approx. 50 minutes to complete. Don't forget to check in before this start time to participate in the Challenge Climb! 

Party on the Roof Deck! 
After climbing Target Field, join us on the Roof Deck for food, drinks, and the Twins Game! Watch the Minnesota Twins take on the Detroit Tigers and root, root, root for the home team!
