THIS IS A CITY OF SHORELINE EVENT THAT I AM POSTING FOR MEMBERS INTEREST AND PARTICIPATION. THIS WILL BE A GOOD WAY TO JUDGE YOUR FITNESS PROGRESS.
3 MILLION STAIR CHALLENGE
Challenge yourself and compete for prizes in the month long event
In 2013 the Shoreline community climbed over 2.2 million stairs at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park. For 2014 we think it’s time to raise the bar so we’re laying down the toughest challenge yet, the 3 Million Stair Challenge!
During the month of June, the City of Shoreline invites you to climb as many stairs as possible at Saltwater Park with the goal of reaching 3 million stairs as a community. Top climbers will receive prizes and bragging rights. Can we do it? Yes we can!
Watch the KING5 Evening Magazine segment
on the 2013 Million Stair Challenge.
Dogs allowed on leash. Scoop law in effect
Did you know? Climbing stairs burns more calories in half the time than most leading aerobic sports!
THIS IS A NO HOST EVENT, MEANING NOBODY IS IN CHARGE AND YOU ARE FREE TO COME AND GO. I DO HOPE THAT YOU WILL MAKE AN EFFORT TO MEET UP WITH SOMEBODY FROM OUR GROUP AS THAT MAKES WALKING MUCH MORE ENJOYABLE. I WILL NOT BE AT EVERY WALK BUT I WILL POST TWICE WEEKLY FOR THE MONTH OF JUNE, SOME OF WHICH I WILL BE AT. I WOULD LIKE THOSE PARTICIPATING TO LOG THEIR LAPS SO WE CAN GET SOME IDEA OF HOW SUCCESSFUL OUR GROUP IS. PLEASE USE THE COMMENT SECTION TO TRY TO MAKE PLANS WITH OTHERS IN THIS GROUP AND AFTER THE WALK NOTE YOUR LAPS HERE AS WELL AS WITH SHORELINE.
How does it work?
The Million Stair Challenge takes place during the whole month of June at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park, 2021 NW 190th Street. Climbers log their flights of stairs in one of the following ways:
Preferred Method (I want to win prizes!) After each climb, go to this webpage and click on the Stair Tracker link on the top right. Log your totals in the Online Stair Tracker. You may also click the QR Code at the top of the stairs to directly access the stair tracker from your smartphone.
Paper Method (No prizes, I just want to participate) Use the paper Stair Tracker sheet located at the top of the stairs. If you want to be eligible for prizes, you will want to use the “preferred Method” of the Online Stair Tracker, as this will allow you to give us your contact information and allow us to contact you if you win a prize.
