Can you Stump The Hump or will the Hump Stump you

Add this to your endurance calendar, the annual Macpac Stump the Hump is a fully supported adventure walk which challenges participants to walk the entire 62km of the Tuatapere Hump Ridge Track in a single go.

Starting at midnight, walk over sandy beaches, through native forest and arrive at the subalpine Okaka Lodge in time for a bowl of porridge and to see the sun rise over Fiordland and the Southern Ocean.

The journey continues over historical viaducts and unspoilt wilderness to Port Craig and onwards to the finish line. Can you Stump the Hump or will the Hump Stump you?

What's it all about?

Setting out from Rarakau, walk over sandy beaches and through Fiordland National Park to the top of the Hump Ridge by moonlight. Arriving at Okaka Lodge for hot porridge and a cup of tea, watch dawn break over Stewart Island and the Southern Ocean - a once in a lifetime experience. Heading down the Hump Ridge by early morning sunlight, walk over historic viaducts and arrive at Port Craig in time for a hearty bowl of soup and a sandwich. Finish your adventure with a Sunday afternoon stroll through native bush and a series of white sandy beaches to Bluecliffs Beach and back to Rarakau.

Macpac Stump the Hump is not a race. Anyone found running will be fed to the Taniwha.
