Following the outstanding success of last year’s inaugural event, Stadium Stomp returns to the iconic Eden Park in Auckland on Sunday 26 February 2017.
About Stadium Stomp
Stadium Stomp takes stair climbing and endurance events to a whole new level. With a course covering over 5,000 stairs within Eden Park’s grandstands, participants will be sent up, down and around the bays, making this the biggest stair-climbing challenge in the country.
Stadium Stomp is not a competition or a race, but a test of stamina and personal achievement. It’s for anyone who wants to challenge themselves, get fit and have fun.
“Last year our stompers, aged between 12 and 62 raised thousands of dollars for worthy NZ charities, including our charity partner St John. We are delighted that Stadium Stomp Eden Park will support St John again in 2017,” says Ben King, event organiser.
Stompers are encouraged make every step count and fundraise for event charity partner St John or nominate a cause close to their heart.
“Eden Park is delighted to again host New Zealand’s biggest stair climb on Sunday 26 February 2017,” says Eden Park General Manager Commercial, Nick Sautner.
“The Stadium Stomp event further demonstrates the multi-purpose capabilities of Eden Park, whilst encouraging health and wellness outcomes for all Aucklanders.”

The event is open to people of all fitness levels aged 12 years and over. The first wave of stompers set off at 9am with wave times taking off every 15 minutes until 12pm
Early bird individual and team registrations are now available ($50 per person).
