Kokoda Challenge 2015
On the weekend of the 18-19th July 2015 Team CB Energy participated in Australia’s toughest team endurance event – The Kokoda Challenge.
Not only was it a great personal challenge for those involved, but a way to make a difference to Australian teenagers through The Kokoda Challenge Youth Program. The 14 month early intervention program is helping young people from a variety of backgrounds to gain confidence, direction, new friends and the skills to overcome any obstacles that life throws at them.
As well as supporting a very worthwhile cause, our trek was also in honour of the Australian soldiers who fought on the Kokoda Track during WWII. We used the spirit borne there of mateship, endurance, courage and sacrifice as inspiration to get us through the tough course.
As a team of 4 we took on the 96km course that encompasses more than 5000 metres of elevation and 12 creek crossings through the Gold Coast Hinterland.
293 did not finish (26%)
280 4P teams start
120 4P team finish (42%)
We were the 25th 4P team over the line and the 1st family team.
Our 4P team was in the top 8% that started.
