SkyRise Chicago - Tower Up!

Climb Chicago's tallest skyscraper for a good cause! Walk, jog or run up 2,109 steps to SkyDeck Chicago at the top of the Sears Tower. If you're not very light on your feet, you can try for the hand-cycle category using stationary hand cycles calibrated for resistance and time to match the stair-climbing experience.

More about RIC.

I'm excited for this new challenge. Stairs are definitely a completely different monster.
