The ultimate stair climb challenge, Stadium Stomp GABBA presented by health.com.au, will be held for the first time at the GABBA on Sunday 22 June, 2014.
Stadium Stomp GABBA presents a unique fitness challenge. It is not a competition or a race, but a personal test of stamina and concentration.
Taking stair climbing and endurance events to a whole new level, Stadium Stomp GABBA provides entrants with the one-off opportunity to take on the 5,000 plus steps on seating Levels 2 and 4 of the GABBA and raise money for a nominated charity at the same time.
We encourage all our participants to fundraise for a charity of their choice or our preferred charity is the Mater Foundation. Fundraising is not mandatory but a great way to make every step count.
Participants climb up, down and around the stairs within the GABBA’s stadium bays, traversing literally thousands of stairs along the way before running a full lap of the ground to finish.
Participants will see the GABBA in a whole new light and be amongst the first to stair climb this Brisbane icon. Queensland has never seen anything like this!
How it works
Stadium Stomp GABBA is open to all levels of fitness. There will be rest stops along the way, drink stations scattered throughout the course and music to keep participants pumped and going.
The course will comprise two laps of Level 4 and one lap of Level 2 before running a full lap of the oval to finish.
It’s approximately 5,000 steps and will take anywhere from 40 minutes to 90 minutes to complete depending on fitness levels.
Staggered start times from 7am to 12 noon will ensure the stairs won’t become too congested.
Who can enter?
Anyone 14 years and older can enter Stadium Stomp GABBA as individuals or in teams. You can form your own team or join a team that has already entered and is looking for more members.
There are training tips and four and six-week exercise programs at www.stadiumstomp.com.au to make sure entrants are prepared for the stair climb challenge that awaits.
There will also be a designated spectators’ viewing area so friends and family can watch the action at no charge.
