Starting at the Ferntree Gully Picnic Grounds amidst the history and awe of the 1000 Steps Kokoda Memorial, competitors set off through the challenging trails and beautiful scenery of the Dandenong Ranges National Park in teams of 2, 3 or 4.

Schools are encouraged to submit teams in either the John Metson 15KM School Cup, the Stan Bisset 30km School Cup or the Jim Stillman 48km School Cup, to take home the Perpetual Trophy for their school.

The Kokoda Challenge Youth Program is a 14-month program for kids aged 16 to 18 years old, which selects applicants from a wide range of backgrounds. The funds are used to help them learn valuable life skills. After their 20-week training, the youth embark on a trip known as the Kokoda Trail, where they engage in humanitarian activities before graduating. All individuals in the program are funded $10,000 each. Individuals who wish to support the teams may donate online or directly to the association’s bank account.

So why not tackle Australia’s toughest team endurance event to change the lives of Australian teens! It’s time to prove to yourself that you can go above and beyond what you think your limits are and do something truly extraordinary!
