Join us for an epic stair climbing challenge inside the iconic SCG and neighbouring Allianz Stadium. Yup, two stadiums at one event and the biggest stair climb in the country!
Climb your way up, down and around the bays over thousands of stairs. There will be rest stops (pick a seat!), drink stations and music playing to keep you focused and pumped. Get ready Sydney!

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 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 (if you believe it will take you 2 hours or more). Most participants will finish before the two hours.
Water stations will be available on course (finish line included). To help us reduce waste from dosposable cups we encourage you to bring your own filled water bottle or camel pack to the event.
Look out for the Water Station signs whilst on course as some are located slightly off course.
Stadium Stomp will go ahead rain or shine, barring any extreme 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.
Check www.facebook.com/stadiumstomp for updates in the event of bad weather.
No Accommodation Partner.
Stadium Stomp is not a timed event. No results will be posted.
Medals will be awarded at the finish line to all participants that complete any of our course options.
Spectators are welcome to attend free of charge. A designated seating area will be provided to view the Stadium Stomp action and watch family and friends.
Recovery Zone and Massage
Mats and foam rollers will be made available for your warm up and cool down needs.
Exercise bikes TBA
Official event photographs will be taken by Supersport Images on the course and at the finish line. These will be available to view and/or purchase post-event via their website.

A coffee and donuts van will be available for your morning caffine and sugar hit.
About the Course
Stadium Stomp SCG is BIG! In-fact it’s the biggest full course we have across all our events. However, 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 +)
7700 stairs (up and down total): As we are combining two stadiums including the newly errected Allianz Stadium, the final full course stair count is yet to be finalised. We can promise you this – it will be big…very BIG…possibly the largest full course we offer. You’ll get your leg-burning challenge for sure! The course should take anywhere from 45 minutes to 2+ hours to complete depending on your fitness level.
Short Course (12 yrs +)
4000 stairs (up and down total): The course will take anywhere from 30+ minutes to complete. This course will take you through most of the SCG experiencing both the upper and lower levels.
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 SCG 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 to help quench your thirst.
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.
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
