Quick Tips    |   Training Spots 

To maximise your performance in the Eureka Stair Climb, we recommend preparing for the event through a training program. 

A stair climb challenge requires endurance and mental strength. Two months of training should prepare you for the event. 

How long will it take to complete the event?

  • Elite climber                    10 - 15mins
  • Intermediate level           15 - 30mins
  • First timer                        30mins+

Stair Climbing Australia have put together some training programs. Choose your level and download a copy:



  • Start your training at least 6 - 8 weeks before event day
  • Train on hills and stairs 
  • Put a pack on for more intense workouts
  • If training on stairs don't run down, but walk to minimise impact on your joints
  • Use the railing (if available).
  • Take the elevator down if you can   
  • Anything goes - stairs, run, cycle, swim, lift weights...

All you need is the willingness to train.....

Remember Eureka Stair Climb involves over 1,600 stairs - so prepare well!
