Bop to the Top is a 780 step and a 500 foot vertical stair climb that is NORMALLLY held at the OneAmerica Tower in Indianapolis. But due to the ongoing pandmeic, and for everyone's safety, we are making the 2021 event
VIRTUAL ONLY and letting you choose when and how much you Bop!

Participants are encouraged to climb as many flights OR as many minutes as you can to during the entire month of February! Your climb can be done indoors, outdoors, or a combination of the two! If you want to stick to a 36 floor / 780 step climb, that is fine, also! There is even a Virtual 5k run/walk option!

Register BEFORE FEBRUARY 21 to be guaranteed a great looking shirt! Shirts will be mailed to the address you register with, so triple check your address when you sign up!


February 1 - 28




Anywhere! You choose!

Ways to "Bop to the Top" in 2021

Here are some examples for how you can participate:
- Step Mill machine
- Stair climb machine
- Jacob's Ladder machine
- Outdoor park stairs
- Parking garage stairwell
- Indoor facility that will permit you*
NEW Virtual 5k option!!! (see section below)

*Gaining permission to use any public/private facility is the responsibility of the registrant.


NEW Virtual 5k Option!

Are stairs not accessible to you? NO PROBLEM! New for 2021, we are allowing registrants to sign up for the Virtual 5k category!

You can complete your 5k run/walk anytime during the month of February. If you want to get competitive, you can still submit your results! But, it's up to YOU to keep track of your performance! (See Submit Your Results section, below)
