4 week great lonnie stomp training



The best way to prepare for the 48-hour challenge that is the Great Lonnie Stomp is to walk the entire circuit! Let Ascent Fitness be your walking workout trainer with our 4 week Great Lonnie Stomp Training Program.

Over four weekends, the program will cover the entire 100km Launceston Urban Fringe Trail course and have a personal knowledge of where the course goes – and how you will best tackle it at the Great Lonnie Stomp.

The further you walk in the 48 hours, the more funds are raised for charity, so get the inside advantage and get to know Launceston a bit better as well.

Read more information about The Great Lonnie Stomp here.


  • Give yourself the best preparation for the Great Lonnie Stomp by walking the course with the person who designed it!
  • Increase your walking fitness and knowledge of the Launceston Urban Fringe Trail to get the most out of the Great Lonnie Stomp on April 6-7, 2019

How much time does it take?

To assist with your endurance for the Great Lonnie Stomp, training sessions build up from 2 hours and increase to 5 hours. However, because you can start and stop as many times on the Great Lonnie Stomp as you like, you can do that in your training as well. 

If you do take a break, you will need to organise transport to pick you up and to rejoin the group later (if you want to!). But the bottom line is that you only walk for as long as you want to.

I had an injury, can I still join?

You certainly can!  Any advice from your GP or Physio is always helpful. If you’re not sure where your fitness levels are at, contact John from Ascent Fitness and make a booking for a 1-on-1 walking fitness test.

I am pregnant. Is this walk suitable for me?

Generally, walking is OK during pregnancy.  However, we ask that you come with specific advice from your GP or Obstetrician on what is appropriate for you.

Following the Federal Government announcement this evening, limiting group sizes (outside of your household) to 2 persons, Ascent Fitness has suspended all group walking sessions until the restrictions are lifted.

Ascent Fitness can continue to offer personal training walking sessions and enquiries to that end are welcome.

Stay safe and we'll see you on the other side!

When you head for the eastern side of the Launceston Urban Fringe Trail from Rocherlea to Ravenswood at 7am on a Sunday, social distancing is easy!

Our small group headed down the Rocherlea Old Rail Trail (the 'back track' if you're a Rocherlea local) and we got to see in full why one Launceston City Councillor described the LUFT as the 'warts and all tour of Launceston'!

There were some pretty bits and some not so great bits along the way, but the not so great bits can get better if more people use the LUFT.
