Australia’s ultimate stair climbing challenge, Stadium Stomp, is taking place again within the hallowed grandstands of The Gabba on Sunday, 28 July.
It’s a fitness challenge unlike any other, with participants aged 5yrs+ getting to step, sweat and smile as they climb up, down and around the bays of Brisbane’s iconic stadium and home to many a great sporting event.
So if you’re looking for something different for your next fitness challenge - something other than a fun run or bruising obstacle race and that the whole family can join in, look no further than Stadium Stomp, the ultimate stair climb.
The full course of over 5,000 stairs and a lap of the ground is open to participants of all fitness levels (ages 12+) and Stomp Unlimited allows participants looking for an extreme challenge to complete as many laps of the full course as they can – the record is currently six! Stadium Stomp is not a race and it's not timed so everyone gets to go at their own pace.
Meanwhile for children aged 5-11 years, Junior Stomp* is a special modified course of 600 stairs, giving kids a taste of the course so the whole family can take part. You can register for Stadium Stomp with a team or take on the challenge on your own.
Spectators and cheer squads are actively encouraged, and are able to view the event free of charge in the designated Spectator Viewing area accessible via Gate 2.
It's an awesome day, a great workout and all participants finish with a lap of the ground and a medal. Plus, you can choose to fundraise and make every step count for official charity partner Leukaemia Foundation, or a cause close to your heart.
*Junior Stompers aged 5-11 years must be accompanied by an adult (aged 18yrs+), with 1 adult for every 4 juniors.
Nice to know - There’ll be drink stations and rest stops along the way, with music pumping to keep you going. The course is expected to take between 40 and 90 minutes.
Need to know - Staggered start times begin from 7am, every 15 mins until 10.30am to ensure the stairs don’t become congested. Junior Stomp is the last wave of the day, at at 10.30am. Choose your time when you register.
