4 week great lonnie stomp training
TRAINING PLAN FOR THE LONNIE STOMP
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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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.
