On December 9, 2012, Peter Bennett (C 24) tackled the eighth annual Coast to Kosciuszko, a 240km ultramarathon from Boydtown Beach to Charlotte Pass in NSW, which includes reaching the summit of Mt Kosciuszko. One of only 50 competitors, he stepped into the history books as the first racewalker to take part in the event. Peter set himself a personal goal of completing the race in 40 hours with no breaks and that he did, coming a very creditable 19th in a time of 38:06:38.
