Events & Clubs Descriptions
Run Club

ASCEND Run Club formed in April 2017. We're a casual group of climbers who are also born to run! We meet every Monday evening near ASCEND's front desk at 5:30p to mingle, start warming up at 5:45p, and take off promptly at 6p! If you're late, you better be fast ;) Typically, everyone starts together and links with similar paces for 3-8 mile runs around the South Side, ending back at ASCEND. Any and all are welcome and do not need to be a member of ASCEND to participate. Spread the word!

If you're interested in becoming an ASCEND Run Club Ambassador, email [email protected] to help build the group's presence.

In order to participate in Run Club you must complete the ASCEND Clubs Waiver - different than the ASCEND Facility Waiver

Cycling Club

ASCEND Cycling Club formed in May 2018 - a casual group of climbers who also love to ride! We meet every 1st and 3rd Saturday morning near ASCEND's front desk at 9a to take off shortly after, no later than 9:15a! If you're late, you better ride like the wind ;) The goal is to determine the group's consensus, but shoot for 2-4 hour rides, starting and ending at ASCEND. Any and all are welcome and do not need to be a member of ASCEND to participate. Spread the word!

If you're interested in becoming an ASCEND Cycling Club Ambassador, email [email protected] to help build the group's presence.

Game Night

Join us for a casual game meet-up in the ASCEND lounge! We have multiple chess boards and a variety of other games, but we encourage you to bring yours to add to the mix. This is a non-staffed event, so please help us build ASCEND's Game Night.

Every Thursday from 6p-10p.
