2018 Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge

The organizing committee for the 2018 Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge would like to extend an invitation to the SVFFA members. We cordially invite all active and retired firefighters to participate in the Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge taking place in Calgary on April 29th.

This is the fourth year of the Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge.  Hosted by the Calgary Firefighters Benevolent Society and presented by Encana Corporation, 100% of event proceeds support Wellspring Calgary. Starting at 3400 feet above sea level and ascending 775 vertical feet – 1204 steps – this climb is the highest elevation firefighter stairclimb in the world. Firefighters have the opportunity to be timed wearing their full duty gear, including SCBA packs (without air).
