Our friends over at the Gateway Arch Park Foundation have unveiled the #GatewayArchStepChallenge. There are 1,076 steps inside of each leg of our beloved Gateway Arch. We challenge you to ‘climb’ up and down the Arch as fast as you can to complete a total of 2,152 steps, which is just over one mile. Here are ten spots throughout the network of greenways that would let you climb up and down the Arch on a greenway!

Get out there before May 31st (even just around your neighborhood) and post on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #GatewayArchStepChallenge to be part of the action – you’ll be entered to win a t-shirt and medal!
