35th Annual Lonestar Tower Climb & Run 2020

LSOOOT0120 - Tower 2018

About CF Climb

This event 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? 1,500 individuals, volunteers, teams from across San Antonio and beyond running, climbing in this great event. Followed by our after 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.

Climbers can participate in the event in one of two ways:

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  (no Bib and no 1 mile run before.  Participants can climb at their own pace).

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