The Kokoda Challenge – Gold Coast – 15-16th of July 2017
A massive sporting achievement by Team Pentacon! Crossing the finish line after just 16 hours and 8 minutes!
The event is a gruelling, non-stop cross country, 4-person team event held over 96kms, with a maximum time limit for completion of 39 hours. This is an excellent event for a great cause, raising money towards the Kokoda Youth Foundation, which takes troubled or disadvantaged children and pairs them with a positive role model from the local community. The program runs for 12 months and shows the youths alternative options and paths they can take to break the cycle they are currently in. The youths range in age from 14-17 years.
In memory of the Australian troops from the 39th and 42nd Militia who first set foot on the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea in 1942 whilst in conflict with Japanese troops.
