Sydney Cricket Ground – Sunday, 11 July 2021.


It’s been a long time between Stomps so we’re pretty excited to announce we’re back at the SCG in a COVIDSafe way on Sunday 11 July, 2021.

Are you ready to experience the ultimate stair climb?

Join us for an epic stair climbing challenge inside the iconic SCG.

Climb your way up, down and around the bays in this 6700 stair climb. There will be rest stops (pick a seat!), drink stations and music playing to keep you focused and pumped. Get ready Sydney!

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

There are course options for everyone – full course (6,700 steps), short course (4,000 steps) and for those who want to stomp until they drop – Stomp Unlimited is for you.

Choose your own start time when you register but be advised, early wave times fill quickly.

Stadium Stomp SCG is not just for Sydney locals but a great excuse for anyone to come and experience this world famous city.

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.
