Are you ready to be a part of India's Biggest Walkathon for a Cause? Get your friends/ family/ colleagues along, and embark on this journey of a lifetime! Registrations are now open - register today to experience the #Best48Hours: Walk through an exciting new trail at Karjat - the Unofficial Adventure Capital of Maharashtra, and challenge your physical and mental limits!
Oxfam Trailwalker is Oxfam's biggest annual flagship fundraiser globally. The event is being held across 17 splendid locations in 10 different countries. This is the world's greatest team challenge to overcome inequality, where teams of 4 walk 100km in 48 hours (or 50km in 24 hours) in tough conditions for people who live in tougher conditions.
Last year, we raised over Rs 6 crores, that helped Oxfam India reach out to 7.93 lakh people from the most marginalised and vulnerable communities in the 6 poorest states of India. Your Step is Their Leap!
The fact that Oxfam Trailwalker has its roots dating back to 1981 when Brigadier Mervyn Lee designed the training regime for Queen's Gurkha Signals in Hong Kong, is testimony enough to the toughness of this endurance event.
In India, Trailwalker was introduced in 2012 in Bengaluru and is currently being held in the cities of Mumbai and Bengaluru. The next events are scheduled as follows:
Mumbai - 23-25 November 2018
Bengaluru - 18-20 January 2019
In addition to the main events, we are organising regular Practice Walks + Meet & Greet events. Follow us on Facebook for regular updates on these!
