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.
