The inaugural Oxfam Trailwalker in Whakatāne helped raise nearly $1 million for great causes and despite some ‘challenging’ weather, was hailed a success by organisers and participants alike.
Oxfam New Zealand is now preparing to do it all again in 2017 and to get the ball rolling, they are hosting an information evening in cooperation with Whakatāne District Council.
The info evening promises to answer any questions new entrants might have and will also offer a preview of the new course for those coming back for seconds. And for those not wanting to tackle either the 50km or 100km courses, there will be information on how you can get involved in other ways.
The evening will be held at the Whakatāne Visitor Centre on Tuesday, 4 October at 6pm. Anyone interested in attending is asked to sign up at www.oxfamtrailwalker.org.nz/latest-news/info-sessions or call the visitor Centre
