The Dallas Vert Mile is a world-class stair climb race and fun walk at Reunion Tower.

Last year, the event was one of only 3 in the United States and 12 worldwide to be part of the Towerrunning World Association's World Tour, and it brought some of the best stair runners in the world to Dallas. Dallas Vert Mile is part of the tour again in 2018, and the field is expected to be even stronger.

The race is also open to the public, and there are 4 vertical - or vert - distances available. All participants do the Vert Sprint Race and Fun Walk, which climbs 50 floors and 470 feet.

You may also do the 3-lap Vert 1/4 Mile; 6-lap Vert 1/2 Mile; or the 12-lap, 600-story, Vert Mile Challenge. The challenge is to finish all 12 laps within the 2 1/2 hour time limit.

The event will benefit participants - who will get stronger, fitter, and happier - along with a number of non-profit organizations.
