100 kilometers to overcome poverty and injustice: you can do it

Oxfam Trailwalker

Challenge yourself and challenge poverty in the ultimate teamwork test.

Your team has to walk 100 kilometers in a limited time - usually 48 hours - in all weather and across some rough terrain. You must work together to all complete the distance within the time. It's a true test of teamwork and determination and for those that make it the sense of achievement is immense.

This is not just a physical challenge though, you will be raising money to overcome poverty and injustice around the world and at the same time acting as an ambassador for Oxfam's work.

There are sixteen trails to choose from in eleven different countries. They go through some commanding natural landscapes including the mountains of Barcelona, rugged Australian bush and through a volcanically active national park in Japan that finishes at the foot of Mt. Fuji.

Since Trailwalker launched in 1981, thousands of walkers around the world have successfully taken on the challenge. Overall, in 2012 over 22,000 people collectively walked over 2.2 million kilometers and raised over $18 million.

If you think you have the team to take on the challenge then take a look at our upcoming events and support resources.

We look forward to welcoming you to an event soon.
