Jamie Candler and Ash Currie are planning to run from Port Douglas to Pajinka Cape York’s Tip. Jamie Candler and Ash Currie have set themselves an ambitious target of running more than 42 kilometres each day, the equivalent of an Olympic marathon in some of the toughest terrain on the continent.
The men are confident their aching muscles, sore feet, and bulging blisters will be worth it as they raise $40,000 for men's mental health charity Movember.
