One hundred twenty-eight runners (70 men and 58 women) of the 140 who registered for the Climb of Death Run competed and finished the race. Twelve runners did not start the event.

It’s noteworthy to point out that the winner of the Women’s Climb of Death Run, Westrac’s Isla Matheson, finished seventh overall.
