What’s so good about stair climbing? Well, aside from the health benefits this exercise gives you, stair climbing is taking off as a sport and the good news is anyone* can do it.
Last year, Stadium Stomp MCG rocked the world of mass participation events normally dominated by fun runs and obstacle races when it exploded onto the market as Australia’s only and largest consecutive stair climbing challenge. The event challenged people with over 7,300 steps within the MCG and inspired them all with rocking tunes and good vibes.
This year, Stadium Stomp not only returns to the MCG but expands to two more states. Hello Queensland and New South Wales!
Stadium Stomp GABBA will become Queensland’s largest stair climbing challenge with around 5,000 stairs to climb within the Brisbane Cricket Ground in a course that will see participants do 1.5 laps of the GABBA before completing a full lap of the oval to finish.
Stadium Stomp SCG surprises all with not one but two stadiums to conquer. Yup, the course is the most dynamic of all the stomp events with participants stair climbing not only the SCG but also Allianz Stadium right next door in an epic 4,700+ stair climbing challenge. There is a catch though – Allianz Stadium is subject to availability pending the finals fixture of the Super Rugby. Should this happen though, event organisers have promised participants to two laps of the SGC as plan B. Hey, not so bad, if you ask me!
The event series kicks off with Stadium Stomp GABBA (Brisbane) on Sunday 22 June, followed by Stadium Stomp MCG (Melbourne) on Sunday, 6 July and ending with Stadium Stomp SCG (Sydney) on Sunday 27th July, 2014.
Registrations are now open to stomp the GABBA and MCG with SCG registrations opening soon. To keep up with the goss’ you’ll need to like us on Facebook or follow us on twitter. SCG registrations will be announced thought these two channels when live.
*Of course if you’re in doubt about participating or concerned about your ability to do a stomp event always seek the advice of your health care professional.
