8:30 AM – 11:30 AM (staggered start)
Salesforce Tower, 415 Mission Street, San Francisco



Join us on Sunday, October 21, 2018, for the first charitable stair climb to be held at Salesforce Tower, the tallest building in San Francisco.  Register to climb to the 61st Floor and enjoy the stunning panoramic views from the top – all in support of cancer research. 

You can participate as an individual or get friends, family members and colleagues together to form a team. 100% of the donations you raise in support of your climb will go to innovative cancer research by today’s best young scientists, funded by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation.

Entry Fee: $40 (increases to $50 on October 10)

Minimum Fundraising Requirement: $150

Minimum Fundraising Requirement Deadline: 5:00 pm on October 15*

Registration Deadline: October 12 

Minimum Age to Participate: 18 years old

*Please note that if the Minimum Fundraising Requirement is not met by this deadline, registrants will not be assigned a bib number or start time in advance.  Registrants must submit the fundraising minimum or the difference (should a portion of the $150 minimum be raised by 5:00 pm on October 15) at Check-In on event day in order to climb.

We encourage all Runyon Up participants to take their fundraising to the next level!  Meeting the minimum is just the first step – fundraising beyond what’s required will make a real difference!  Not only that, but the money you give and raise could be matched by one of our generous donors, doubling its impact!  See how the match works here.

Start times will be staggered.  Participants will be launched in waves of approximately 80 people every 15 minutes, with climbers starting in 7-second intervals.  You can choose your preferred start time window when you register.  Elite Climbers who plan to climb competitively will be scheduled in Wave 1 at 8:30 am.  (If you are an Elite Climber, please contact us.)  All other climbers can select a one-hour window for their start time on a first-come, first-served basis.  Start times will be posted on the Runyon Up website and emailed to climbers the week of the event.

Not up for climbing 61 stories? Join the Virtual Climb!  Flex your fundraising muscle to get a ride to the top – virtual climbers must raise at least $1,500 to take the elevator instead of climbing to the 61st Floor.
