What is it?
Trailwalker or Oxfam Trailwalker and the related Trailtrekker are fundraising endurance events conducted across the world by Oxfam, in which teams of four competitors must complete a course of 100 kilometres (62 miles) in a set time limit – typically between 24 and 48 hours. The routes may be point-to-point or follow a circular route returning to the start.
There are some common rules across all the Trailwalker and Trailtrekker events.
The four members of the team include Nigel Collier (CEO) and David Logan (Strategy Director) from Skylab and Spencer Gallagher (Author, Speaker, Co-Founder at Cact.us and AGENCYNOMICS) together with Peter Hoole (Author, Co-Founder at Cact.us and AGENCYNOMICS)
The obvious reason for doing the walk is that we want to support the charity but to decide to walk 100km in one go requires a deeper, personal motivation. We believe in having a good balance between work and health and we wanted to jumpstart a few lifelong changes that improve our health and fitness and therefore the health of the business. We also wanted to do the walk as it has a sense of adventure and camaraderie (although we might run out of things to talk about by mile 30!!!). Finally, there is the unknown – can we actually walk non-stop for up to 30 hrs?
Why are we doing this?
What we are trying to achieve speaks for itself, but we can only succeed with your support. We have made an enormous commitment in time and effort, but it is your financial support that will help us achieve our goals.
