Stump the Hump 24hr Challenge: 3-4 February 2012

Stump the Hump 24hr Challenge: 3-4 February 2012

Stump or be Stumped?

Stump the Hump is a 24hr walking event aimed at endurance sportspeople and adventurous trampers. Stump the Hump challenges you to walk the entire 55km of the Tuatapere Hump Ridge Track in a single day. Starting from Rarakau at midnight on Friday 3 February, trek over sandy beaches and through ancient podocarp forest reaching the subalpine Okaka Lodge in time for hot porridge and to watch dawn break over the Takitimu Mountains, Stewart Island and the Southern Ocean. Walk down the Hump Ridge as the sun rises, through untouched beech forest and across historic viaducts, arriving at Port Craig in time for lunch. Finish with a Saturday afternoon stroll through native forest to Bluecliffs Beach.

Stump the Hump is not a race: it is a chance to experience a day in the life of the track.

Stump the Hump is unique in New Zealand. No similar overnight endurance walking events of its kind exist. Stump the Hump is not just another Routeburn Classic or Kepler Challenge that appeals solely to the running community. It is a unique, all inclusive, endurance walking event designed for adventurous individuals from all sporting backgrounds. The opportunity to hike overnight and watch dawn rise over the Southern Seas will, for many people, be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Cost: $120pp
