No more leisurely climbs: it's an all-out sprint up a greased telephone pole to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat! Fueled by the crowd's cheers (and jeers), competitors must test their speed, balance, and will to grab the flag at the end of the pole. The format is simple: grab the flag and advance to the next round. If you fail to hold the flag, you'll be relegated to the sidelines, watching in anticipation of your chance at redemption next year. It’s a test of speed, skill, and sheer determination.

So lace up your sneakers, channel your inner champion, and prepare for an all-out sprint at Red Bull Championship Run.
