Raise funds for the Kokoda Youth Foundation

Are you up for the challenge?

The 96km Gold Coast Kokoda Challenge is our hero event! The Gold Coast is the only location with the full 96km course, making it truly live up to the title of Australia’s toughest team endurance event.

Through this event, you will be raising funds for Aussie kids who participate in Youth Programs run by the Kokoda Youth Foundation. We are a local charity with a mission to change the lives of Aussie teens by providing experiential programs that engage and inspire them to reach their full potential.  

We also aim to educate all Australians about the history of the Kokoda Campaign in 1942 and offer a life-changing experience for all Kokoda Challenge competitors in our amazing team events!
