Team Impact Award

Posted: February 9, 2012 in Impact Award, Prizes, Stairclimb, Teams

If you and your team are using Stairclimb as a way to flaunt your physical fitness, we want you to sign up to compete for this year’s Impact Award!

The Impact Award is awarded to the team of 4 (no more, no less – but don’t worry, if you’re part of a larger team but still want to compete, you can simply select 4 team members to participate) whose average climb time is the fastest. The winning team will walk away with a prize package from Impact Magazine for each team member, including a dry fit Impact Magazine t-shirt and a runcuf to keep your valuables safe while you’re working up a sweat!

The fine print:

  • Teams must have exactly 4 people (if you are part of a larger team, select and submit the names of the 4 participating team members before the registration deadline)
  • All members must be registered by the online registration deadline (Friday, February 24, 2012 at 11:59 PM)
  • Winning time is determined by averaging the times of your four participating team members

If you think your team has what it takes, contact Sophie ( before 11:59 PM on Friday, February 24 to register your 4 team members!


Each year we have a contingent of Stairclimb participants who use the event  to challenge their athletic abilities  by trying to beat their own climb time or by competing light-heartedly with other climbers.

This year, as part of a group challenge pilot, we’ve recruited a number of  competitive Stairclimb teams willing to battle it out to achieve the fastest climb time — and walk away with some prizes courtesy of  Stairclimb sponsor Impact Magazine! Participating teams include:

  • Babe-Stead
  • Innovative Fitness
  • Kalev Fitness Solution
  • Salmon Steppers
  • South Arm Bootcampers
  • VBCE Climbing for Gold

Thanks to Impact Magazine for their support and generous prize donation!
