It’s once at the top of the Cap-Blanc staircase that the sprint starts for about 1.5K. The running speed of each participant will be measured. Prizes will be given to both men and women.

Time limit & Timing

The time limit is of 3:40.

The MyLaps Bibtag system from Sporstats will be used for the Staircase Challenge.

With this system, there is no need to attach the timing device to a shoe. The timing tag is in the back of the bib.
