After the civilian races, there is a First Responders Challenge where firefighters race up the same stairs in their full gear weighing 50 to 75 pounds. 

The Captain of the Nashville Fire Academy, Terry Hollis, participated last year and said he can’t wait to do it again. He has a personal connection since he lost his mom to lung cancer and feels for all those suffering.  Captain Hollis wants to get more firefighters involved and civilians, too.
