The second annual Stump the Hump will take place on 3 February 2012.

Stump the Hump is a 24hr walking event aimed at endurance sportspeople and adventurous trampers. Participants will be challenged to walk the entire 55km of the Tuatapere Hump RidgeTrack in a single day. Starting at midnight on Friday 3 February, they will walk through ancient podocarp forests at night and reach the sub-alpine Okaka Lodge in time for hot porridge and to watch dawn break over the Takitimu Mountains, Stewart Island and the Southern Ocean. As the sunrises, participants will walk down the Hump Ridge, travelling through ancient beech forest, overhistoric viaducts and arriving at Port Craig Lodge in time for lunch. They will finish with an afternoon/early evening stroll along Bluecliffs Beach.

We have had a fantastic response to this event but still have a few spaces left. Entries for Stump the Hump will close on 27 January.
