Oxfam Trailwalker is one of the most inspiring team challenges in the world. You and three mates will journey through 100km of bush trail within 48 hours. Some states also offer alternate distances – 50km or 60km within 24 hours. It’s not a relay. Your team has to start together, stick together and finish together — it’s tough, but with the right training and attitude you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve. The feeling when you cross the finish line will be something you’ll never forget.
Oxfam Trailwalker is a life-changing experience and every step you take helps raise vital funds to support people living in poverty. You’ll be part of a global phenomenon where ordinary people achieve something extraordinary and make a lasting difference by supporting Oxfam’s work around the world. Oxfam works with local communities to help them create their own sustainable solutions to poverty. Together we are promoting education, ensuring access to clean water, teaching skills to grow food and advocating for their basic rights.
