Rules of Entry
Participants must be at least 10 years of age to participate in the Sydney Tower Stair Challenge, or 8+ years if participating in the Junior Buddies Climb.
Cost of Entry
* The Everest Team Challenge is only for the super fit. A maximum of four teams will be allowed to enter this category and will be made up of 9 participants per team who aim to complete 36 ascents (36 x 260m = 9360m) of the building in total. While this averages 4 ascents per person, one team member may do more climbs than another if required. Completion will have your team exceeding the height of Everest (8848m). All persons must enter as individuals initially. If you have a group of 9, enter online and then email firstname.lastname@example.org . We will then put your members together as a team after all are officially registered. If keen to take on the challenge but not sure your friends wish to join you, we will add you to a team of other individual Everest enthusiasts. The cost is $90 per person. If you ascend 4 times it averages $22.50 per climb. Great value and we guarantee you will never look at the Sydney Tower the same way ever again! The Everest Team Challenge participants will be the first group to start at 7.55am. After each ascent simply come to the front of the start line to go again. You have until the last climb at 11.30am to complete the challenge.
**Fancy Dress entry is per person, but if you are dressing up with friends you can leave the start line in groups or 2, 3, 4 up to 11 people (just in case a cricket team turns up!)
Junior Buddies 2 person teams must consist of 1 adult and 1 child (over the age of 8), the adult team member must stay with the child team member from start to finish to ensure safety.
Online entries are available until 12 noon on the Saturday prior to the event (unless the event is sold out prior to this date). Please check individual and team category times to ensure you arrive at the correct time. Entry on the day (provided places are still available) can be paid for with cash only. ATM machines are available in Pitt St Mall.
All participants are required to pledge a minimum of $40 above and beyond their event registration as fundraising. All fundraising dollars raised assist Giant Steps as they work with children with autism in Gladesville, NSW.
To make every step count why not tell your friends on social media and email that 'I am taking on the tallest Building in Sydney - check it out at (insert your unique fundraising url)'. This is a great way to let everyone know what you're doing and you will be amazed at just who decides to donate $$ towards your climb...$40 - easy!
