It is a gruelling, 96km cross-country trek (or, if you’re a machine, run) through the spectacular Gold Coast hinterland. The time limit for completion is 39 hours.
These numbers hold special significance in Kokoda history; 96km is the exact length of the Kokoda Track in PNG. The time limit of 39 hours is in honour of the 39th Militia, who were the first troops to defend Australia at Kokoda.
Each team of four participants (with the help of their Support Crew) treks the 96km course along fire trails, crossing 12 creeks and climbing summits of 5,000m of vertical elevation. The goal is to finish as a complete team of four in honour of the spirit forged on the Kokoda Track in 1942: courage, endurance, mateship and sacrifice.
The minimum age to participate in the main 96km event is turning 15 in the year of the event (accompanied by an adult). Regardless of fitness level, age or background, people from all walks of life find participating in The Kokoda Challenge a great personal achievement.
Also, by raising money for The Kokoda Challenge you are helping to change young lives and ensuring teenagers access to a brighter future for themselves, their families, and the greater community.
