What is the Aussie 8?
Three adventurers summited the highest mountain in each Australian state in just 8 days to set a new record. Logistically challenging, physically gruelling and emotionally draining. During the expedition they ran over 150kms, ascended over 5,500m and travelled over 13,000kms around the country in a race to take on Australia’s greatest and most remote peaks
Will they be up to the challenge? Will they make their connecting flights? Will they find a masseuse in Alice Springs?
Why would someone do this?
This great southern land of Australia is full of wide-open spaces, packed with potential adventures and populated by people wanting to get out and explore. They just sometimes just need the inspiration to do so
To have an adventure, set a world record, inspire people to #GetOutdoors, produce a documentary for television and showcase Australia’s ‘National Landscapes’
