2018 Registration is SOLD OUT.

Event date: March 11, 2018

2019 Event Date: TBD


Early Bird Registration:

  • 2018 Early Bird Registration opened November 1, 2017 at 0900 PST, and ran through November 3, 2017 at 1700 PST. 2019 EB dates TBD.
  • Early Bird is only applicable to those who participated in last year's event and fundraised $1,800 or more.
  • All Early Birds will be emailed the link to register on the morning that EB Registration opens. This link is only to be used by those who qualified. If you register during Early Bird and you did not qualify, staff will unregister you from the event.
  • New in 2018: To qualify for Early Bird registration for the 2019 event, you must raise $1,800 or more.

Things to know before you register:

  • If you have participated in the Scott Firefighter Stairclimb before, please clear the cookies in your web browser prior to registration to ensure your web browser does not pull-in old login information. A new username must be created and used every year.
  • Every participant must register as an Individual. After you make this selection during registration, you will later be asked to input or select your Team (Department) Name. Scott Firefighter Stairclimb staff will assign each registrant to their appropriate team during the two weeks following registration. Team Captains will receive an email notification when a new team member is added to their team. 

Important Registration Information:

  • Due to space capacity within the Columbia Center, registration is limited to a maximum of 2,000 participants.
  • Registration typically SELLS OUT in under one hour. The 2018 event sold out in 22 minutes. If you are in the middle of registering and the system kicks you out, it is because registration has already sold out. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
  • If registration sells out before you are able to secure a spot, you can join our waitlist. The waitlist will close just after our swap/drop deadline passes (2019 date TBD). There is no guarantee you will get off the waitlist. However, you will receive an email from a member of the Scott Firefighter Stairclimb staff if space does open up.
  • Every participant must pay an $80 registration fee. This fee is separate from the fundraising minimum of $300/person that must be met to pick up your race packet and climb on event day. 
  • All registration fees are non-refundable.
  • Use an email address that you have access to. If you unsubscribe from Scott Firefighter Stairclimb emails you will not receive important event-day information such as your assigned start time, etc. 
  • Every participant must use a unique email address. The same email address for multiple registrants will not work. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

How to Register:

  • Take a look at our registration walk-through HERE.
  • You must create a NEW username every year of participation. 
  • You will receive an automated confirmation email if you've been successfully registered that contains a link to your Participant Center. This is where you can track your fundraising progress and have supporters donate to your name. We recommend bookmarking this link for easy access, and saving the link on your phone.
  • If you need help changing or retrieving your password, email, or username after registration is complete, contact for assistance.


  • I will be out of town or on-shift when registration opens, can someone register for me? Yes, another individual may complete the registration process for you. You should send them all of the information needed to fill out the forms by consulting this link. Make sure they use a real email address for you, as this is where all important event information will be sent. 
  • Can I register multiple people or my entire team on the same transaction? No. Every participant must register individually.
  • Are there rules for making a team name? It is strongly preferred that all team names directly correspond to your department name. 
  • After I register, if I find out one of my team members will not be able to compete after all, can I swap in another team member in their place? Yes, but all swaps MUST be completed by the swap/drop deadline. The 2018 deadline was on February 16, 2018. The 2019 deadline is TBD. The team captain must contact us at and a staff member will facilitate the swap. Newly swapped in members are required to pay a $25 swap fee, and the original registrant will not be refunded their initial registration fee. Those who swap in are still held responsible for meeting the fundraising minimum of $300/person by event day.
  • What happens if I need to drop out of the event after the swap/drop deadline of February 16, 2018? Please contact to let us know to remove you from the event. Because you dropped after the time period in which we are able to fill your spot with an individual from the waitlist, you will still be held responsible for meeting the $300/person fundraising minimum by the final fundraising deadline of March 30, 2018 or you will be unable to participate in future Scott Firefighter Stairclimbs.
  • What are my chances of getting off the waitlist? There is no guarantee space will open up to get off the waitlist. However, if you are allowed into the event you will be notified soon after the swap/drop deadline of February 16, 2018 passes.
  • I was registered for the 2017 Scott Firefighter Stairclimb and did not meet the $300/person fundraising minimum - can I still participate in 2018? No. If you did not meet your fundraising minimum in 2017 and register for the 2018 climb, you will be unregistered after the 2018 registration closes. If you were unable to participate in the 2017 event and unregistered before the swap deadline of February 16, 2017, you were NOT held responsible for last year's fundraising minimum and will be able to participate in 2018.  

Good luck!
