Westpac Stadium Wellington course 2019

Check out the Wellington stadium course map [PDF]. On Thursday 7 November you will take on over 4,500 steps up, down and around the turf, a unique and unforgettable experience – that’s approximately 2 laps of Westpac Stadium! There will be drinks stations available, music to keep you going and of course plenty of seats should you need a break.

Please note Stadium Climb Wellington is a challenge not a race. This is not a timed event.

As you finish

As a final thrilling finish to your epic climb, you’ll complete a lap of the boundary line so you can soak up what you’ve just achieved at this magnificent ground.

Water stations and toilets

You are welcome to carry your own drink bottle around the course, however there will be water stations located throughout the course.

Please be aware that toilets will be open at each water station on course and at the start and finish line.

Withdrawing during the event

If you are unable to complete the course for any reason, please alert a Volunteer or staff member who will determine the safest way to exit the course and escort you back to the starting area.

Medical assistance and first aid

Qualified medical staff will be located around the ground to assist with any medical issues that may arise. If you spot someone needing medical assistance, please get the attention of the nearest volunteer who will then alert medical staff. Volunteers will all be wearing high visibility vests so will be easy to spot on course.

What to watch out for

It’s a concrete jungle out there!  The stadium is full of twists and turns.  Stairs will vary in height, width, gradient and the number of stairs per aisle depending on where you are climbing.

Course tips

  • If it’s raining take extra care
  • Rest and take a seat if or when you need to. This is permitted anywhere along the course
  • Make use of the handrails – They help stabilise and double as a great arm work out!
  • If someone needs assistance, please alert a volunteer or staff member
