K2K in a day is one of Sydney’s premium challenge track. This can take you anywhere from 12 – 20 hours depending how well you know the track. Someone in our group knew the track quite well and I felt like everyone made quite good pace, but we still finish around 17 hours. In my opinion, the hardest bit was the track down to Cox River, which took us around 1.5 – 2 hours? The track was not easy to find at places, and if I was to navigate myself the first time, it might have took me much longer than 17 hours, having someone who knew the track already saved us quite a bit of time.
I was slightly slower when walking on the offtrack rocky terrain (especially the Kanangra side (I also tripped once and wounded my knee around the 10km mark but no issue), but anything on proper track and any elevation I can fly. Being a track runner in high school, I used my finishing kick alongside some fried chicken wings and fast jogged the last 4-5km of narrow neck. Doing this track on 3 hours of sleep also does not help 😛

Hi everyone! I'm William Chow, 27 year old hiker from Sydney, Australia. One of my many passion is hiking, trail running, camping, star gazing and exploring the outdoors so thanks for stopping by. Since I go hiking/bushwalking almost every weekend (and multi day hikes now and then when time allows), I decided to dedicate a site (seperate from my personal blogging site) to share my adventures on every walk I do, and I hope you feel my passion in my blog enough to do some walks yourself!
