WHY?

Raise funds for the Kokoda Youth Foundation

Are you up for the challenge?

39 hours of over 4,000 metres of elevation, walking all weekend through the day and night in whatever weather conditions are thrown your way and pushing yourself beyond what you thought you were capable of. The Kokoda Challenge is Australia’s toughest team endurance event and will test your physical and mental limits, proving to yourself what you’re really made of.

Raise funds for the Kokoda Youth Foundation who are changing the lives of local teens in our community. Honour the Kokoda diggers who fought for our freedom along the Kokoda Track in 1942 and achieve what you thought was impossible.

“The most physically and emotionally exhausting thing we have ever done, but also the most incredible and inspiring thing we completed. You are pushed to your absolute limit and you need every ounce of willpower to keep going. But it is worth every step” – Past competitor.

Vaccinated and unvaccinated people can register and attend The Kokoda Challenge as our events are classified as an “Outdoor Community Event” and are non-ticketed events (meaning spectators and support crew can attend without needing to purchase a ticket). Masks will be required and all attendees must check in via the QLD Check In App throughout the course of the event. This is the current information we have been provided by Queensland Health as of 10/01/2022, which is subject to change. We will advise of any changes through our social media platforms, please feel free to contact us should you have any questions or concerns. 

In the event that the 2022 Kokoda Challenge should be cancelled or postponed as a result of COVID-19, participants will be given the option to either have their registration fee refunded to them or have their registration transferred to the 2023 Kokoda Challenge. For more information, please see the Terms and Conditions.
