The faces behind Aussie 8 are; Ben Southall, Luke Edwards and Pat Kinsella. The team of adventurers set themselves the challenge to climb the highest peak in each state in just 10 days. Beginning in the ACT they climbed Bimberi Peak, from there they climbed the highest peak in NSW, VIC, TAS, SA, NT, WA and finished at the bottom of Mt Bartle Frere in QLD. Over the challenge they ran more than 150kms, ascended over 5,500m and traveled over 13,000kms around Australia. The three exceeded their expectations and completed the challenge in an astounding 8 days, 14 hours setting a new record!
