I’m concerned about COVID-19 safety or am unable to climb in-person this year. Is there a virtual option?

Even if you cannot make the in-person climb, you can still help people living with asthma, COPD, lung cancer, COVID-19, and other lung diseases. Sign up for the Hustle Virtual Climb!

Make the fitness challenge a fun part of the virtual experience. Climb on your own in the gym, your basement, or your building’s stairwell. However, there is no requirement to prove you’ve climbed 94 flights on your own. Your key role as a virtual climber is making a difference through fundraising.

You’ll have full access to the RHA Fundraising Toolkit and be able to create a personal fundraising page to help with your efforts. You can qualify for fundraising contests, incentive prizes, and will receive a Virtual Goody Bag on event day! Virtual climbers also receive access to Active Impact, a platform that allows you to track your activity to help you train or catalogue your virtual climb.

Virtual climb fee is $10 and does not require any minimum fundraising.

Virtual climbers who raise $100 or more will receive a Hustle Chicago t-shirt, bib, and commemorative medal.

What steps are you taking to keep climbers safe?

To ensure the safety of all climbers, volunteers, and building staff, we continue to follow all federal, local, and state public health guidelines around COVID-19. We are taking additional precautions as we return to an indoor venue, including:

  • Limited event capacity to allow proper social distancing. Guests will also not be allowed in 360 CHICAGO to allow further social distancing.
  • Increased time between climber starts to reduce congestion in stairwells.
  • Regarding masks, RHA will follow any local, state, federal, or venue protocols required at the time of the event. There is currently no mask requirement for indoor events, and they will not be required. Participants, volunteers, sponsors, and guests are encouraged to wear a mask in areas at the event where large numbers of people gather – such as the start line, After Party, etc.

We strongly urge all participants, volunteers, sponsors and staff to receive all of the available vaccinations against COVID-19.
