What can I bring into the stairwell?

  • Water: You may carry a water bottle, or wear a waist pack hydration system. However, we will have water stations approximately every 10 floors, so you should be ok without your own water unless you really need it.
  • Music: You may wear a personal music device for the race as long as the volume level allows you to hear any instructions from building or host personnel in case of an emergency. Preferably in one ear only.
  • No backpacks are allowed (including child or pet carriers). Fanny packs or waist packs will be searched before entry to the stairwell.
  • Any item that is a weapon or can be used as a weapon is prohibited. This includes fire axes, police batons, etc even if you are a first responder and it is part of your tactical gear/uniform.
