The Kokoda Challenge

Considered as the most tough endurance event in Australia, the 2014 Kokoda Challenge is a difficult 96 kilometre cross-country event that needs to be completed in 39 hours.

96 kilometres is the actual length of the real Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea. The 39 hours is in honor of the 39th Militia - the first Australian troops who first set foot on the Kokoda Track.

Participants will be required to trek the 96-kilometre course that consists of fire trails,  twelve creeks and a vertical 5,000 metre elevation.

The goal is to complete the course as a team of four as according to the spirit present on the Kokoda Track during 1942. The challenge develops endurance, mateship, courage, sacrifice.

Teams must also raise funds for the Youth Program of the Kokoda Challenge by acquiring sponsorship support. All funds raised will go to Kokoda’s Youth Program.

More than 150 teams from different schools are involved in the Gold Coast Kokoda Challenge Event.

Everyone can enter regardless of age, skill level, fitness or background.

The Gold Coast Kokoda Challenge will take place on July 19 to 20, 2014 at Firth Park, Mudgeeraba. The event is a quick drive from our Chevron Resort.
