Stadium Stomp – the Ultimate Stair Climb, has been running for five years in Adelaide and is seeing more people participate each year.
An estimated 2,000 people are expected to climb the stairs surrounding the bays inside Adelaide Oval in June, with registrations already exceeding last year’s 1,500 participants.
Stadium Stomp Marketing Manager Susie King said the premise of the event is for people to use Adelaide Oval in a fun and unique way.
“Instead of sitting in the grandstands to spectate, the grandstands become the challenge, creating the greatest stair climb challenge Adelaide has ever seen”.
Stadium Stomp is held nationwide with personal trainer and health expert Tiffiny Hall leading the event for the first time and guiding participants with her online fitness programme.
Registered stompers are invited to join TIFFXO and are given a month of free access.
“It’s so exciting because I love training as many people as I can, and this way I have access to everyone across Australia, and we’re all striving for one goal together,” said Hall, who has trained with celebrities and athletes.
“I’ve always loved having a goal as a trainer and getting people there, so what’s bigger than Stadium Stomp and hundreds of stairs to conquer? It’s awesome.
“I’ve always been a big fan, it’s iconic—everyone getting together and of course raising money.”
This year, Stadium Stomp has partnered with the Leukaemia Foundation and encourages participants to help raise funds through registration, or for a charity of their choice.
“We’re doing it for a great cause… and we’re getting fit, we’re getting healthy,” said Hall.
The former Biggest Loser trainer and current health expert on Channel Ten’s The Living Room said participants can make the most out of the event with the support of friends and family.
“What I love about the Stadium Stomp is that it’s very social. For people to get the best results out of their fitness, they do need support,” Hall said.
“I think it’s a great challenge to set yourself, to see what you can do.
“It’s not a competition, so you can stomp at your own pace, and you can choose your different levels and different ways.”
Participants can select from a full course of 6000 steps, a short course or Junior Stomp of 1000 steps, or an Unlimited Stomp—all of which will have rest stops, drink stations and music to keep stompers going.
“I think it’s mostly about having a great experience with other people, surrounding yourself with likeminded people who are into fitness, raising money for some excellent causes and celebrating your achievement”.
Participants can register for the event on the Stadium Stomp website and select their preferred course and start time, after which they will receive an e-mail containing an exclusive discount code for one month of free TIFFXO (valued at $39).
The program includes workout tutorials, healthy meal plans, meditation techniques, bonus challenges and exclusive motivational videos to prep stompers for the big day.
“I’m with you every step of the way,” said Hall.
The event’s full and short course is open to all fitness levels aged 12 and over (junior Stomp is for ages 5-11), and commences at 7am on Sunday June 16 at Adelaide Oval, with the first wave starting at 8am. All participants will be awarded with a Finishers Medal and given access to a free post-climb massage.
