Walking, Distance running


Looking for a great way to challenge yourself while supporting a great cause? The Swallow Cliff Stair Stepper Challenge is the perfect challenge for you! Takes place the month of September. Route 83 and LaGrange Rd in Palos Park, Illinois.

Swallow Cliff stairs were the old toboggan shoots back in the day. Now the site attracts fitness buffs from all over to trek up the stairs then loop around to the return steps. The up side has 125 limestone stairs and another side of 189.

Now, what if every time you made a loop, you raised money for those in need of shoes? That’s the idea.

Registration is $35 per Stepper.  You choose the dollar amount per loop ($5/$10/$15/$20) and donate via PayPal (on or make a check payable to "Share Your Soles Foundation" and mail to 11201 S Cottage Grove, Chicago IL 60628.    

1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes will be awarded for most money raised.  Those raising $250 or more can pick up medals at your same packet pick up location in October. Visit under the Sponsor-Events tab for more info.  Thank You and Good Luck Steppers!
