The Kokoda Challenge
The Kokoda Challenge is not your average event. It’s not just a standard trail run or charity walk, it’s about experiencing a glimpse of what our Aussie heroes endured while defending our country in 1942 on the Kokoda Track. It’s about giving back to the locals and connecting with one another in the community. It’s about proving to yourself that you are capable of far more than what you think you are when you have your mates beside you.
The Kokoda Challenge is Australia’s toughest team endurance event. Are you ready for the challenge?

Take on The Kokoda Challenge
You’re only as fast as your slowest team member and the goal is to cross the finish line as a whole team, leave no one behind!
The most challenging and rewarding experience that I have ever undertaken. It gave me a strength I didn’t know I had, and I finished it with teammates who became my trusted and cherished friends for life.
I had an incredible journey with my team. There was so much teamwork and mateship on the track that inspired me and pushed me across the finish line. While we were walking we all said we would never do it again, and within 24 hours we were planning for next year!
It’s an experience like no other. If you want to find the limit to which you can push your mind and your body then this is the challenge for you. With amazing scenery to do it in too, even if you are staring at the ground for what seems like most of the event.
