The first challenge was held in 2001 in conjunction with the Centenary of Federation celebrations. This event was not only to challenge serious competitors but to give the opportunity for locals and adjoining communities to enjoy such a wonderful natural attraction, whilst walking the gorge with friends. Competitors travel from vast distances to compete, some who camp at the Gorge for the weekend enjoy more than just the challenge.
Categories include Open Men's, Ladies and Under 16 and Under 12 section for boys and girls, with the overall winner taking pride of place on the perpetual trophy. A special perpetual trophy is also awarded to the first local Flinders Shire resident past the post. Prize monies is given to the first 4 place getters in the Open Men's and Ladies sections, Junior's are awarded with individual trophies and a prize pack.
The challenge has grown over the years with support through the Queensland Events and 2008 saw the first opportunity for business to sponsor the event. This sponsorship will help the event expand and encourage more competitors to participate in a very unique event. Each year the event is run by the Flinders Shire Council who is a major supporter of the event.
