Challenge yourself and compete against others in this free month long fitness event

Shoreline’s 6th annual Million Stair Challenge starts back up on June 1, 2017 with some exciting new changes! Each year, during the month of June, the City of Shoreline invites the community to climb as many stairs as possible in the name of health, fitness, and friendly competition.

For 2017, the community has spoken and the Million Stair Challenge will be expanding to allow participants to climb stairs anywhere they want!

This includes flights of stairs at work or home or at your favorite climbing spot in and outside of Shoreline. There is no need to sign up, just log your total flights each day in the online tracking system and see your totals and standings posted in real time on the website.

Along with creating some friendly competition, stair climbers are encouraged to set a personal goal for the month, with small prizes awarded for anyone who reaches their goal.

At the end of the challenge, all participants are invited to an end of the challenge potluck on Friday, June 30 at 6:30pm at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park, 2021 NW 190th St. Bring a dish to share and join us at picnic shelter located at the bottom of the stairs. We’ll award prizes to participants who make their climbing goals.

More details on the Million Stair Challenge can be found here or by calling Recreation Specialist Marianne Johnson at 206-801-2638.

Million Step Challenge History

In 2012 the City of Shoreline created the first Million Stair Challenge hoping to encourage more use of the large bank of stairs at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park.

Since then those stairs have become one of the most popular fitness spots in Shoreline and every June hundreds of Million Stair Challenge participants come out to meet the challenge set forth by the City of Shoreline.

To allow the challenge to grow further, it had become clear that there needed to be more climbing locations. 2017 will mark the first year allowing participants to climb anywhere they want.
