2012 Scott Firefighter Stairclimb - Results are In!



March 12, 2012 -- On Sunday, March 11, 2012, 1,550 firefighters competed in the Scott Firefighter Stairclimb. The stairclimb is a timed race up the stairs at the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle, Washington in full fire gear and Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA). At 788 feet of vertical elevation, the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle, Washington stands as the second tallest building west of the Mississippi. It takes 69 flights of stairs and 1,311 steps to reach the observation deck overlooking the city.

This unique event is the largest individual firefighter competition in the world.   

The annual stairclimb supports the mission of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Portland Firefighters have been busy raising money through sponsorships, fundraising, and entry fees. In 2010, the event featured over 1,500 firefighters from 281 different fire agencies and brought in a record $930,000 for blood-cancer research and patient services. 

The 2012 climb honored Lilli Trippe who was eight months old when she was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive leukemia. Over the next three years she endured two bone marrow transplants, several rounds of chemotherapy, and many complications from treatment.  To learn more about Lilli's story, please visit her CaringBridge Page.

According to the official Scott Firefighter Stairclimb website, race results for Portland Firefighters are as follows:

  • Firefighter Travis Tetzlaff – placed 20th out of 1,500 total firefighters who finished the stairclimb with a time of 13:42
  • Firefighter Liz Thompson – placed 281st out of 1,500 total firefighters who finished the stairclimb with a time of 17:22
  • Lieutenant Rich Tyler – placed 358th out of 1,500 total firefighters who finished the stairclimb with a time of 17:54
  • Firefighter Jason Martin – placed 402nd out of 1,500 total firefighters who finished the stairclimb with a time of 18:15
  • Lieutenant Stephenie Bowen – placed 548th out of 1,500 total firefighters who finished the stairclimb with a time of 19:25 

Fundraising efforts will continue until the end of March 2012.  If you are interested in donating to Portland Fire & Rescue's Team or any other team or individual, click here to access the donation portion of the Scott Firefighter Stairclimb website.
