9/11 Tower Run

An Airman runs up a flight of stairs during the Sept. 11 Tower Run at Yokota Air Base, Japan, Sept. 8, 2017. The tower run competition was a timed event completed relay style with 4-member teams. Each member ascended and descended to the 9th floor of a tower 3 times wearing a 20-pound self-contained breathing apparatus air pack. By the end, each team collectively climbed 110 floors, equivalent to the World Trade Center that fire fighters and first responders climbed during Sept. 11. (U.S. Air Force photo by Machiko Arita)
