The Kokoda Challenge is excited to announce that in 2022 we are holding three massive events all based in sunny Queensland! To celebrate the launch of our Sunshine Coast event, we are offering Kokodians the chance to participate in our Kokoda Pinnacle event. 

For a reduced price and fundraising amount, you and your team can take on the Kokoda Challenge in all three Queensland locations. The Pinnacle pricing includes participation in the following events:

Brisbane 30km Kokoda Challenge

Sunshine Coast 48km Kokoda Challenge

Gold Coast 96km Kokoda Challenge

Through this event, you will be raising funds for Aussie kids who participate in Youth Programs run by the Kokoda Youth Foundation. 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!

COVID Safety & Vaccinations 

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.
