Individuals or teams?
You can do this solo or as a member of a team however the target of 25,000 stairs remains an individual target. Creating a team will allow you to fundraise as a group for our charity partner.
Can I sign up multiple people?
Yes. You can nominate to pay for these people or send them an invitation to complete their registration and pay their own way.
Do I have to do it all at once?
To replicate a real Stadium Stomp event as closely as possible, completing one stadium in a single session is the closest you’ll get. But you can take as long as you need to climb 25,000 stairs during our virtual month. All you need to remember is to log each workout on your dashboard. The system will let you know when you’ve reached the stair count for each Stadium and a badge will light up!
The time it takes to climb each stadium is up to you.
How long will it take to do one stadium?
As they do in real life, each stadium has a different stair count which will affect the length of time it takes to complete. If you plan on doing a single stadium in one session you are looking at 60+ minutes (depending on your fitness level) but your time will be affected by your set of stairs and the number within the set, so it’s a very difficult thing to quantify. You’ve got a month to complete 25,000 stairs, space it out however you need to.
Is there a prize for the fastest climb?
Stadium Stomp has never been about posting a winning time. We see all our events including this one as a challenge not a race.
Can I start recording my stairs climbed before 1 September?
You can but we’ll be resetting the clock to zero on 1 September.
Do we get a medal?
Medals are not included with the FREE registration. If you'd like to receive a Stadium Stomp Virtual 25,000-stairs medal, you can elect to upgrade and we'll post it directly to your door. You'll receive your purchased medal regardless of if you complete 25,000 stairs. View this as your incentive to FINISH!
What if I don’t complete all the stadiums?
That's A-OK. We're giving you a target, you'll do your best to get there. We can't ask for more than that.
Do I have to fundraise?
No. You’ll have the choice when you register to fundarise for Black Dog Institute (Mental Health) or to not fundraise at all. Having said that this website is super set up to make fundraising really easy. Even if you raise a small amount it’s worth it!
When do I get my merchandise?
Purchased merchandise (including the merchandise and medal packs and merchandise purchased through the shop), will be posted in three lots - the beginning, middle and end of September. Depending on when you signed up for this event your order will be posted at one of these times. Please be patient with this.
