Runyon Up Participation Options

Want to take part in this exciting new event but not sure you can climb all the way to the top? We have three different participation options, so choose whatever steps you can take to help us beat cancer!


Register to climb to the 72nd or 54th Floor (or opt for the virtual climb and take the elevator!) All registrants will have access to the post-climb party on the 54th Floor. Light refreshments and stunning panoramic views will be served!


Full Climb - Climb to the 72nd Floor
  • Participants will climb the stairs from the lobby level to the 72nd Floor.

  • When registering and selecting this option, please indicate whether you plan to climb at a fast, competitive pace in the Elite Heat OR at a moderate pace, like most participants.

  • Elite climbers will be scheduled in the first heat at 6:30pm.

  • All other climbers choosing the full climb option will be assigned a start time between 6:40pm and 7:30pm.

Partial Climb - Climb to the 54th Floor
  • Participants will climb the stairs from the lobby level to the 54th Floor.

  • When registering and selecting this option, please indicate whether you plan to climb at a fast, competitive pace in the Elite Heat OR at a moderate pace, like most participants.

  • Elite climbers will be scheduled in the first heat at 6:30pm.

  • All other climbers choosing the partial climb option will be assigned a start time between 6:40pm and 8:20pm.

Virtual Climb - Take the Elevator to the 54th Floor or Climb from a Distance
  • Participants will skip the stair climbing but still support cancer research.

  • When registering and selecting this option, please indicate whether you will attend the event and take the elevator to the 54th Floor or if you cannot be there on event day.


All registrants, including virtual climbers, pay a $40 entry fee and must meet a $72 minimum fundraising requirement. That's just $1 per floor of the building to support cancer research!
