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.
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.
Check www.facebook.com/stadiumstomp for updates in the event of bad weather.

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 +)
6700 stairs (up and down total): The course will take anywhere from 45 minutes to 2+ hours to complete depending on your fitness level. You’ll be repeating some of the course twice within the SCG to achieve the high stair count that is the full course. Note for previous stompers: With the demolition of Allianz Stadium course changes had to be made.
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.
Full course explained:
The full course participants are expected to do TWO LAPS of the short course map with the exception of the Don Bradman Stand and the MA Noble Stand. The first lap is done once the upper deck of the Bill O’Reilly Stand is completed. Full course participants will then run back past the start line at ground level and complete their second lap – only this time, once they have completed the upper deck of the Bill O’Reilly Stand they head upstairs to the Don Bradman Stand and the MA Noble Stand to complete their 6700 stair count before popping out on the oval for their victory lap.
Pay attention to the LAP CHECKPOINT signs. If you are a full course participant you will go past this once at ground level. When you see it again, you’ll head upstairs to the Don Bradman Stand.
Don’t worry, as long as you follow the signs and directions from volunteers it will all make sense on the day 🙂
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 with four stations in total (including the finish line).
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
