Red Bull Championship Run

July 27, 5pm8pm.

In a city that is no stranger to champions (and its media-worthy celebrations), Red Bull Championship Run brings a whole new meaning to “grease the poles.”

No more leisurely climbs: it’s an all-out sprint up a greased telephone pole to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat! Fueled by the cheers (and jeers) of the crowd, competitors will have to test their speed, balance and will, to grab the flag at the end of the pole. The format is simple: grab the flag and advance to the next round. Fail to grab the flag and you’ll be relegated to the sidelines, watching in anticipation for your chance at redemption next year. It’s a test of speed, skill and sheer determination.

So lace up your sneakers, channel your inner champion, and get ready for an all-out sprint at Red Bull Championship Run!
