Have you signed for Trail's Storm the Stairs event? The 2nd Annual Storm the Stair fundraising event for the Trail United Way is one of the most unique fitness challenges (or friendly fitness walks) in BC!

Storm the Stairs was started in 2015 by the United Way of Trail and District as friendly fundraising event for those individuals looking for a healthy physical challenge.

The course features two routes: The Express (4 km) & The Grande (6.6 km). Each route features 18 covered staircases (1495 total steps). While enjoying this challenge, runners and walkers alike see some of the most scenic views of the Columbia River and Rock Walls of historic West Trail.

Storm the Stairs hopes to attract a diverse group of participants, from youth 14 and up to adults in their 70’s, and people of many different fitness and ability levels. The money raised from this event will go to the United Way of Trail and District Annual Campaign fund for reinvestment to the many organizations supporting the physical, mental and social well-being of the communities we serve. Great awards and prizes for division winners.
