Frequently asked questions
Can I take my own water bottle on the course?
Yes. In-fact we are encouraging this as we try to reduce our footprint on the environment. You can refill at any of the water stations on course. We have a total of 4 water stations on the course (including the finish line). If you plan on taking a disposable water bottle or use our single use cups, please dispose of at a water station bin thoughtfully when no longer required.
Is bag drop free?
At this stage our 2021 events will not have a bag drop to align with our COVIDSafe planning. Please refer to the Event Day Info on the webpage of the stadium you are stair climbing for latest updates.
What should I bring?
- A copy of your confirmation receipt
- A copy of your signed waiver (SA and QLD only)
- Layers – you’ll get hot quickly climbing stairs but cool down equally as quickly after you finish if the weather is chilly. Check the forecast and be prepared. remember: No bag drop this year (2021) so bring what you can carry or leave it in the car.
- A water bottle (for environmental reasons) otherwise water stations will be on course with single use cups.
- A smile! Remember you paid to do this
Will I be photographed on course?
Yes. We use the professionals at Supersport images who will have photos available to view and/or purchase on their website within 48 hours of the event. All participants should be emailed a link to view their images by Supersport images when they become available (check your spam)
Can I carry my baby in a harness on the course?
Sorry no. Accidents can happen and we’d hate for you to have an accident whilst carrying your child. We suggest making arrangements with someone you know prior to the event to baby sit or look after your child in the spectator bay at the event whilst you stomp
Can I wear a weight vest on the course?
This is permitted, but please expect to have this checked and searched at point of entry and again at the start line
Can I do this without shoes on?
Is there a time limit to complete my Stomp?
Stadium Stomp is not a timed event.
Participants will have until 2 hours after the last full course wave of the day (2.5 hours for Melbourne) 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.
Can I get a refund?
IMPORTANT: Please note we do not refund at all within 7 BUSINESS days of your event – irrespective of the group you fall into below (unless it is COVID related as a result of Government imposed restrictions). Please do not wait until the last minute.
2020 Ticket Holders – You must have re-registered for a 2021 event (using the promo code you were provided via email in late Feb/early March – check spam) in order to seek a refund. If you have not re-registered and do not have a 2021 ticket for an event yet to happen, your ticket date has now passed and we can no longer refund you.
New Registrations (2021 events onward) – While our regular Terms & Conditions state that we don’t provide refunds, we recognise that we are operating in very unique circumstances at the moment. With that in mind, registered participants for our 2021 events have several options if their event is postponed due to COVID-19 or changes to Stadium availability:
1) Transfer your registration to the new date in the future (this will happen automatically if we need to move an event date).
2) Transfer your registration to another Stadium
3) Transfer the credit from your registration to our Virtual Event and/or merchandise.
4) Request a refund. Note for refunds: we will provide a refund on the ticket price minus a $10 admin fee if it’s COVID related (as per above). MCG stompers please click here as expiry dates are now in place for refunds. Please note that we are unable to provide a refund on the Active processing fee, which is charged at the time of booking.
If you are prevented from attending a Stadium Stomp event due to COVID related travel restrictions (border closures etc), we will refund up until 24 hours before your event and no later. Address checks against your registration may be necessary to qualify.
Non-COVID related refunds:
Please note: ticket insurance was offered at the time of registering for full refund coverage for any reason other than event cancellation, through third party operator Active Insurance.
Should you be requesting a refund for non-COVID related reseaon without insurance, we only refund on the presentation of a doctors certificate to the value of 50% of your ticket but will not refund at all within the lead up of 7 business days of your selected event or post event. Please refer to our event terms and conditions for further clarity.
We are happy to transfer your entry to someone else if you can find a replacement. See “Can I transfer my registration?” in these FAQs for more on this. Cut-off dates apply and no transfers will be granted after event bibs have been posted (around 3 weeks out from your event).

Please read carefully the instructions and the notes here as essentially the new person will need to pay for the ticket at the current price but once done, you will be refunded your 2021 ticket price automatically.
If you have transferred across from 2020 and paid $0, it is NOT possible to transfer through your account login and receive a refund for your $0 ticket.
If cut-off dates have been initiated (3 weeks out from your event), no transfes will be possible.

Pending availability in your preferred wave time, you can change wave times or even course length from your account login here. For instruction click here.

You will be charged or refunded any price differences from course lengths and alerted prior to payment if you make this change. Straight wave time changes within the same category (course length) may involve a fee as you will be charged the difference of your purchase price and the current ticket price. Cut-off dates for you to do this yourself will apply (typically 3 weeks out from your event). Any changes after this will need to be requested by contacting us.
Can I register more than once?
If you’d like to register for multiple stomps this is only possible with the purchase of an Unlimited category ticket.
How do I know if my registration came through?
Can I view or update my details?
Can I transfer my registration to another city/event?

If you’re replacement event costs less than your original purchase, NO refund will be offered for the difference.
