Kokoda Challenge in Brisbane, Queensland

Get a team together with friends, family, workmates, sports or school mates and challenge yourself at the Kokoda Challenge. In honour of the Kokoda Spirit, this 30km & 15km event winds through some of Brisbane's toughest terrain.

The event scheduled for June 5th was postponed to September 4th 2016 due to severe weather.

The track undulates through the natural green scenery west of Brisbane Forest Park. Starting at Brookfield Showgrounds, make your way up to the checkpoint at McAfee's Lookout before returning to the showgrounds via the subtropical rainforest of D'Aguilar National Park, reminiscent of the Owen Stanley Ranges in Papua New Guinea.

The 30km (or 15km) distance coupled with wide open fire trails makes this the perfect event for beginners or runners having a hit out. Teams of 2, 3 or 4 must complete the course together in honour of the spirit forged on the Kokoda Track in 1942: courage, endurance, mateship and sacrifice.
