The 2010 Kokoda Challenge – a grueling 96km run/walk/crawl through the most rugged terrain possible in the Gold Coast Hinterland – has been run and won.
It’s no co-incidence that the 2 winning teams – Team Nike Hammer & Hogan’s Heroes from Elanora High on the Gold Coast – both used Hammer Nutrition as their main energy nutrition.
The Nike Hammer team beat the old record by 6 1/2 minutes, whilst the Elanora High lads, under the direction of their inspiring teacher Glen Hogan, wiped 21 minutes from the school competition record.
That’s Jack Sinclair from Elanora High (l), Scott Whimpey of Team Nike Hammer (centre) & Harry Sinclair from Elanora High (r) hamming it up for the cameras after the wins.
Well done to all teams who completed this very tough event.
We’re currently editing up a video interview we did with Scott Whimpey that will be of great interest to Kokoda competitors and people taking on any sort of endurance event.
