Set up to test teamwork, endurance and determination, Trailtrekker is the ultimate physical and mental challenge.You'll need to motivate and encourage each other from start to finish to get the job done, so be prepared to pull together to achieve something astonishing.
The other vital team is your Support Crew - friends and family who'll meet you at checkpoints along the route to provide supplies and encouragement. Their help carrying your gear and giving you morale boosts you really cannot do without. Or if you prefer, Oxfam can provide you with a Support Crew as part of our Full Support Package. Nice and easy.
It'll be one of the hardest things you ever take on, but the sense of achievement you'll get when you cross the finish line will blow you away.
There are three Trailtrekker distances: Bronze (40km), Silver (65km) and Gold (100km), and it's completely up to you and your team which you go for. Whichever option you choose, it'll be a huge challenge - and one you won't forget anytime soon. We also offer a full support package, leaving you to focus on the walking while we worry about the logistics.
