Thousands participate in annual stair climb in Bisbee

By Taylor Higgins . CREATED Oct 19, 2013

BISBEE (KGUN9-TV) - A race dubbed the 5k that feels like a 10k -- took place in Bisbee today.

It's the 23rd annual Bisbee 1000 -- the Great Stair Climb.

The sold out race of 2000 runners and their fans took to the streets of Old Bisbee to try their skills in racing up the nine staircases for the chance to win bragging rights of finishing the course first.

People of all ages took place in the event-- many just trying to finish the race.

Bisbee's nearly six-thousand-feet elevation makes this race challenging-- but many gear up for the test every year.

If you missed this year's event you can catch it next year! The race is always the third Saturday in October!
