We are excited to announce we will be back for our 38th Annual Tower Climb and Run at the Tower!

38th Annual Tower Climb and Run
Tower of the Americas
Saturday, January 28, 2023

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! 

How to Participate:

COMPETIVELY TIMED – Each person will run 1 mile, wears a chipped timed bib, and races to the top of the Tower to the Observation Deck/Finish Line.
