The University of Notre Dame Office of Military and Veterans Affairs will host the third annual Storm the Stadium from 9 a.m. to noon April 25 (Saturday) at Notre Dame Stadium, with proceeds benefiting the University’s military and veteran students.
Storm the Stadium is a stair-climbing event up, down and around Notre Dame Stadium along three distinct courses:
- A long course consisting of 3,185 steps around the lower and upper bowls of the stadium.
- A short course consisting of 1,579 steps around the upper bowl of the stadium.
- A flat, accessible walking course around a 0.65-mile loop between the lower and upper bowls of the stadium.
The event also features an on-field Family Fun Zone with inflatables and games for children ages 13 and younger.
New this year, climbers will be released in waves based on pace — racing/running climbers first, followed by steady climbers and then walking climbers — and have more space on the field, and all long and short course climbers will be timed, with awards for the top finishers by age.
Once again, there will be rest stops and drink stations along the courses, and music will play during the event to keep climbers motivated.
