On the Move Art Studio


With rain and snow in the forecast, and can be tough to get in that exercise this time of year, luckily the Urban Mountain Challenge offers a unique way to work up a sweat indoors, and it's all for a good cause.

Unlike most run/walk events the Urban Mountain Challenge is a vertical climbing challenge that tests each participant to climb 30 stories (638 steps) as fast as he/she can. It's a true test of stamina, strength, agility and speed. There are usually lots of tired legs following this event. The Downtown Double involves running up 5 stories of the parking garage (About 3/10th of a mile of running) next to the Financial Building, then ascending down the stairwell, running another 75 yards from the parking garage into the Financial Tower and then climbing 30 stories to the top. A portion of race proceeds will go to On The Move Art Studio to support their mission of traveling to lower income neighborhoods and providing free art classes for children. The race will begin at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, January 26th at the 5/3rd building in downtown Lexington.Online registration is open and will remain open until midnight on Friday at Just check under the race calendar for Urban Mountain Challenge. Walk-up registration will be available the morning of the race from 7:15-8:30am at Proof Fitness which is located on top of the parking garage next to the Financial Tower. Parking passes are availabel for anyone who parks in the parking garage.To learn more about On the Move Art Studio visit:
