The Kokoda Challenge is a cross-country bush-walking team event where teams of 4 people trek a 96km course through the Gold Coast Hinterland within a 39 hour time limit.
The event was designed to reflect the key elements of the Spirit of Kokoda with 96km representing the actual distance of the Kokoda Track and the 39 hours symbolizing the 39th Militia who were the first of our Australian troops to arrive at Kokoda on 15th July 1942!
This is a gruelling event, which has broken many an individual and torn teams apart. The best thing about this challenge is that you have to work together with each other to complete the event. Everybody has to finish.
Each year gets harder and harder as more and more teams take up the challenge.
To stay on your feet and moving the entire time, you need a good nutrition plan!
