WHAT IS THE GREAT LONNIE STOMP?
On April 6-7, 2019, an exciting walking challenge awaits!
The Great Lonnie Stomp is Launceston’s Ultramarathon Walk. From midnight on April 5th to midnight April 7, challenge yourself and your mates to walk as much of the Launceston Urban Fringe Trail (LUFT) as you can.
While you are doing it, you will be having a great challenge, a greater experience and you will be raising funds for a worthy charity as you go. The more of the LUFT you cover in 48 hours, the more you will raise for Guide Dogs Tasmania!
Unlike many other fundraising events, your donations are included in your registration fee. So, once you have registered, you can focus on the event. The amount donated will be 20 cents per kilometre per person plus 100% of any dog registration fees.
So the more people and dogs who walk, the more we will be able to raise for the Guide Dogs! We have kept the dog registration fee at a flat rate, so that people don’t overwalk their dogs. We are also grateful to the Mowbray Vet Clinic who will be on-call the entire 48 hours if needed.
The cost of registration is $70 per person. Dog registrations will be $10 each. We welcome teams and individuals. Companion card holders and guides or carers also welcome.
Registrations for Great Lonnie Stomp are now open.
