Locate a Trailwalker

Help Gorkha region in Nepal

The Trailwalker owes its existence to the Gurkhas of Nepal. In 1981, the Trailwalker began in Hong Kong as a training exercise for the legendary Gurkha regiments of the British Army.

Today it has become a global phenomena. Thousands of people have taken the challenge to walk 100kms in 48 hours and raised funds for social cause.

But now we face a new challenge – help the people in Nepal. To this day, Gurkha soldiers are recruited from remote regions in Nepal. These areas have been devastated by the massive earthquake.

A team of Oxfam from India is in Gorkha district, providing food, water and shelter to the affected people. But more needs to be done.

We need your support. You supported the challenge to ‘walk for equality’. Now come forward and take the challenge to help Nepal.

Can your team go the distance?

Your team has to walk 100 km 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 spectacular locations 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 it began in 1981,1000s of walkers around the world have successfully taken on the challenge. In 2012 over 22,000 people collectively walked over 2.2 million kilometers and raised over $18 million US.

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.
