Participants have the choice of running in a pack (3 person teams) and/or as a lone wolf (individually) in competitive timed events or walking the stairs (untimed). When you participate in a pack, you still compete as an individual–the pack times are an aggregate of each individual’s time.
The race will cover the entire Stadium Bowl, ‘weaving the stairs’ by running up one staircase, and down the other. Total steps climbed 814, total descended 814 for a grand total of 1,628 steps.
