Oxfam Trailwalker Melbourne, 8–10 April 2016
Sees teams walk or run 100km through Melbourne’s outer suburbs, the Dandenong Ranges and Yarra Valley within 48 hours.
Oxfam Trailwalker is one of the most inspiring team challenges in the world.
The stunning Melbourne trail kicks off in the outskirts of the Melbourne CBD, winding its way through the densely forested Dandenong Ranges aNational Parks, before pouring out into the sweeping plains of the Warburton Valley.
Four mates journey through 100km of bush trail within 48 hours. It’s not a relay. Teams have to start together, stick together and finish together. It entrants spend months in the Dandenong Ranges and Yarra Valley preparing themselves for this gruelling challenge.
Oxfam Trailwalker is a life-changing experience for its particpants and each team works hard to also raise funds to support people living in poverty all over the world.
Originating in 1981, Oxfam Trailwalker began as a training exercise for the elite Queen’s Gurkha Signals Regiment in Hong Kong. It has since grown into one of the world’s ultimate team events with almost 200,000 people taking part and $140 million raised in support of Oxfam’s work.
