If unique, fun, fitness events are your thing then it's likely you've heard of Stadium Stomp. 

Stadium Stomp is the ultimate stair climbing challenge where participants climb the grandstand of some of Australia's mightiest stadiums to test their endurance on thousands of stairs.

The first of the 2017 series of "Stomps" was held on 16 June at the MCG. Thousands attended to climb up to 7300 stairs in an epic challenge that's unlike any other event out there.

Stadium Stomp MCG also offered a short course option of 1890 stairs, for those that felt 7300 was just a bit too much and also the Junior Stompers aged from 5-11 years who were able to participate for the first time this year along side their parents.

"I just love it. It's such a sense of achievement, especially after doing a lap of the ground to finish and then looking up at this massive stadium knowing you just climbed all the stairs in it," says full course participant, Sharon Westin-Shaw.

Stomp participants can view their photos via the Supersport Images website and search for themselves by surname or bib number.

Event organisers, King Performance, have been organising Stadium Stomp events since 2013 and now boast a great series with events in Melbourne (MCG - 7300 stairs), Adelaide (Adelaide Oval - 6000 stairs), Sydney (SCG - 6300 stairs) and Brisbane (GABBA - 5000 stairs).

"It was great to see people of all ages, shapes and sizes crossing that finish line. We had tears, plenty of hugs and lots of tired legs on the day," said Marketing Manager, Susie King. 

The event also supports National Charity Partner, the Leukaemia Foundation and participants can choose to fundraise as part of their Stomp. Fundraising pages can be set up here.
