Stadium Stomp GABBA – Sunday 25 July, 2021.


It’s been a long time between Stomps so we’re pretty excited to announce we’re back at the GABBA in a COVIDSafe way on Sunday 25 July, 2021.

2020 Ticket Holders – please note you need to register again (free) in 2021. Click here for more information.

Are you ready to experience the ultimate stair climb?

Join us for an epic stair climbing challenge inside the iconic Gabba stadium in Brisbane.

Climb your way up, down and around the bays in this 5,000 stair climb. There will be rest stops, drink stations and music playing to keep you focused and pumped. Get ready Brisbane!

There are course options for everyone – full course (5,000 steps) for stompers 12 years and older and Junior Stomp (600 steps) for kids 5-11 years. And for those who want to stomp until they drop – Stomp Unlimited is for you.

Choose your own start time when you register from 7am but be advised, early wave times fill quickly. Junior Stomp is the last wave of the day. See registration form for times.

If you’re looking for something different for your next fitness challenge, something other than a fun run or bruising obstacle race, look no further than Stadium Stomp Gabba. It’s damn tough at a pace, scenic at a stroll and an amazing experience all round.

We encourage all our participants to fundraise for charity.  Choose a charity close to your heart and start fundraising today! Fundraising is not mandatory but a great way to make every step count.

The Gabba is a 42,000 seat stadium and is located at Woolloongabba just two kilometres from the Brisbane CBD, making this event easy to get to.

Other event information

Course Time Limit

Stadium Stomp is not a timed event.

Participants will have until 2 hours after the last full course wave of the day to complete the full course. After this time, announcements will be made over the bowl mic and a member of the Stadium Stomp Operations team will direct any participants remaining on course to make their way down to the field of play to complete their finisher lap.

If there are minimal people on course and resources permit, consideration will be given by the Event Director to allow the participant(s) to continue in conjunction with either a Stadium Stomp volunteer or event staff member following them.  NB. The course may be packed-down around participants as this process occurs.

To allow yourself the most time to complete the course, we recommend registering for an early wave time.

Wet Weather

Stadium Stomp will go ahead rain or shine, barring any inclement weather conditions that would put the safety of the participants at risk. In the event of inclement weather, modifications to the route may be made to ensure everyone’s safety.

About The Course

Course options available make this event open to all levels of fitness. There will be drink stations scattered throughout, music to keep you going and of course plenty of seats should you need a break.

Please note Stadium Stomp is a challenge not a race. This is not a timed event.

Full Course (12 yrs +)

5000 stairs (up and down total): The course will take anywhere from 35 minutes up to 1.5+ hours to complete depending on your fitness level. You’ll be stomping two laps of the steeper upper levels, one lap of the lower ground level and a lap of the oval to finish.

Junior Course (5-11 yrs)

600 stairs (up and down total): For little stompers wanting to stomp with their parent(s) or guardian. We encourage health, fitness and movement in youngsters and think our junior course is just perfect. This course utilizes the shallower stairs of the bottom level only and includes a lap of the oval to finish. Junior only waves (last wave of the day) will ensure your little people aren’t over run by our older stompers.

*Each junior must be accompanied by a registered junior course adult ($5 for the accompanying adult who must register) and one adult can accompany multiple Juniors.

Stomp Unlimited (12 yrs +)

As many stairs as you dare: Stomp your way around the full course as many times as you dare from the first wave time until the last. This category is not for the faint hearted and numbers are strictly limited. You will be required to finish the course in full and head back to the start line to commence your subsequent laps. Earn an additional finishers medal each lap.

As you finish

As a final thrilling finish to your epic stomp, you’ll complete a lap of the GABBA boundary line so you can soak up what you’ve just achieved.

Water stations and toilets

You are welcome to carry your own drink bottle around the course, however there will be water stations located throughout the course with two servicing the upper levels and two servicing the lower level including the finish line water station.

Please be aware that toilets will be open at each water station on course and in the main concourse/Expo area but will be locked elsewhere.

Withdrawing during the event

If you are unable to complete the course for any reason, please alert a Volunteer or staff member who will determine the safest way to exit the course and escort you back to the starting area.

Medical assistance and first aid

Qualified medical staff will be located around the ground to assist with any medical issues that may arise. If you spot someone needing medical assistance, please get the attention of the nearest volunteer who will then alert medical staff. Volunteers will all be wearing high visibility vests so will be easy to spot on course.

What to watch out for

It’s a concrete jungle out there! The stadium is full of twists and turns. Stairs will vary in height, width, gradient and the number of stairs per aisle depending on where you are climbing.

Course tips

If it’s raining take extra care.

Rest and take a seat if or when you need to. This is permitted anywhere along the course.

Make use of the handrails – They help stabilise and double as a great arm work out!

If someone needs assistance, please alert a volunteer or staff member.
