Registrations are open NOW for team entries into the Toowoomba Kokoda Challenge.
In honour of the Kokoda Spirit, hundreds of locals will take part in the Toowoomba Kokoda Challenge 30km and 15km trekking event at Redwood Park, Range Escarpment on Sunday May 4th. Over 400 participants are expected, comprising of teams of young and old. Team members will endure blood, sweat and tears through heart and spirit breaking hills on a day that emulates The Spirit of Kokoda – mateship, endurance, courage and sacrifice.
The Kokoda Challenge in Toowoomba is being hosted & run by the Rotary Club of Toowoomba South and is being sponsored by Hutchinsonâ€™s Builders, Northpoint Shopping Centre, The Chronicle, Austereo 4GR & Ellipis Media.
All funds raised by the Toowoomba Kokoda Challenge will go towards funding Toowoomba teenagers to take part in the Kokoda Challenge Youth Program â€“ an initiative that helps local teenagers who are at a crossroads in their lives to gain confidence, direction and life-skills.
The 30km and 15km distances, coupled with the beautiful trails, makes this the perfect event for beginners or for runners training on rough terrain. Teams of two, three and four will find the course is not without toils, as the ascents and descents are challenging – all contributing towards getting a taste of the meaning of endurance before arriving triumphantly at the finish line.
