Stump the Hump is unique in New Zealand. No similar overnight endurance walking event of its kind exists. Stump the Hump is not just another Routeburn Classic or Kepler Challenge that appeals solely to the endurance running community: it is a unique, all inclusive, endurance walking event designed for adventurous individuals from all sporting backgrounds. Neither a race, nor a run – its appeal stretches far and wide and the opportunity to hike overnight and watch dawn rise over the Southern Seas will be, for many, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

The event will take place on Friday February 1st, 2013 and challenges its participants to experience a day in the life of the Tuatapere Hump Ridge Track and walk all 55km in less than 24hrs. The event is not a race and encourages participants to have fun with frequent check points, each with fun energetic volunteers and a different theme. At these check points we offer our participants beverages and light snacks to keep energy levels up and keep them going.

Starting at midnight on Friday 1 February, they will walk through ancient podocarp forests at night and reach the sub-alpine Okaka Lodge in time for hot porridge and to watch dawn break over the Takitimu Mountains, Stewart Island and the Southern Ocean. From there they will walk down the Hump Ridge, travelling through ancient beech forest as the sun rises and arriving at Port Craig Lodge in time for lunch. They will finish with an afternoon/early evening stroll along Bluecliffs Beach.

This event has shown great success doubling in numbers each year. This year we are well on our way to getting 250 participants.
