Feel like a fitness challenge? How about joining in Australia's ultimate stair climbing challenge!
Stadium Stomp is a fun and unique fitness challenge, setting participants on a stair climbing course up, down around the bays of Australia’s most iconic sporting stadiums.
Stadium Stomp is back in Sydney on Sunday 16th July and the SCG and Allianz Stadium. Here's the challenge, participants get to cover over 6,300 stairs and finish with a lap of the ground.
Anyone 12 years or older can enter individually or as part of a team with friends, family or workmates.
Stadium Stomp supports official Charity Partner, the Leukaemia Foundation and participants are encouraged to make every step count and fundraise for this amazing charity, or a cause close to their heart.
PT extraordinaire Shannan Ponton has taken on the role as Fitness Coach for the 2017 Stadium Stomp event series. All participants will receive access to our new Get Stomp Fit, 5-week training program developed by Shannan, specifically to get them ready for this epic stair climbing challenge. Shannan will also be completing the Stadium Stomp SCG course with his team, Shannan’s Stompers, in the 9:15am wave.
Event organiser Ben King, stresses that Stadium Stomp is a challenge open to participants of all fitness levels, so even if you don't feel like you are fit enough, give it a go! Who knows it might start you off on a whole lifestyle change.
Stadium Stomp is an Australian concept, owned and operated by an Australian family business. There’s nothing else like it out there on the world stage.
How it works
Stomp as many times as they dare from the first wave time until the last. This is not for the faint hearted and places are strictly limited.
Participants will climb up, down and around the bays of the SCG on a course set to music that is expected to take anywhere from 40-70 minutes to complete depending on fitness levels.
Staggered start or wave times begin from 8am to 11am to ensure the stairs don’t become congested.
Anyone 12 years and older can enter individually or as part of a team and participants can choose their preferred wave time when registering.
Spectators can view the event free of charge via the designated spectator viewing area accessible via Gate A. In this way family and friends can watch and support the participants as they stomp around the SCG grandstands.
Why do it?
There aren’t many people in Sydney who haven’t been to the SCG to watch a game and cheered from the stands. Now New South Welshmen can experience the SCG in a unique way and become an active participant rather than the traditional spectator.
If you need a fitness reason, stair climbing is an excellent way to build cardiorespiratory endurance and lower-body muscular endurance and strength.
Climbing a flight of stairs (ten steps) is the equivalent calorie burn of taking 38 steps on level ground, so it’s almost four times as beneficial to take the stairs.
