Answer :

For the stretch to be of same length, the value of acceleration due to gravity at both the places should be same.

Acceleration due to gravity at equator


Acceleration due to gravity at a height above south pole


Now,






Hence, at about 10 kms above the south pole, the spring will have the same elongation as that at the equator.
