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?

Yes. Bag drop is a free service. If you can manage without using bag drop, please do and leave your valuables at home. Bag drop is often busy and you can expect delays for this free service.

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.
  • 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?
No. The venue terms and conditions are quite clear on this and no bare foot running is permitted. Whilst in the venue you must have 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?

Withdrawing from Stadium Stomp may be necessary due to unforeseen circumstances such as an injury or ill health. A change of mind or a double booking do not meet refund conditions.

Stadium Stomp will refund under health reasons on presentation of a medical certificate issued by a registered health practitioner up to 7 BUSINESS days prior to your event, minus a $10 administration fee.  Please email us via the contact link found at the base of this website if you meet the criteria for a refund.

Refund requests made after the above time frame (up to 7  business days prior to your event) will not be granted at all. 

Transfers are permitted up to the Friday prior to your event. See “Can I transfer my registration?” in these FAQs for more on this.

Can I transfer my registration to someone else?

Yes, this can be done from your account login (link on your confirmation email or click here).  A small transfer fee of $5 will be charged to the new registrant to cover the transfer fees we are charged from the agent.

Can I transfer to the following year?

Unless the reason you can no longer attend  is due to Stadium Stomp event changes (such as a postponment, or change made by Stadium Stomp), then we do not allow transfers to future events. Please make sure you can attend on the advertised date before you book.

Can I change wave times?

Yes, You can do this yourself. Log into your Race Roster account and find the big blue button that says Edit Registration. Then click on the products tab to change your time. No charge to do this. Cut off dates may apply and you’ll only be able to move to a wave time with available spots.

If you want to actually change course lengths there is a charge. See “can I change Course categories”

Can I change course categories?

Yes, You can change between cateogories (full to short course for example).

This is known as a Sub-event and can be changed from your Race Roster dashboard (link on your confirmation email or click here). You will be charged or refunded any price difference.  A small transfer fee of $5 will also be charged to you to cover merchant fees as you’ll essentially be doing a new registration.
