Oxfam India has opened registration for the sixth edition of its Mumbai Trailwalker being held on November 23-25, 2018. With a crucial message of ‘Walk for Equality’, the walkathon intends to promote team spirit across communities and raise funds. This year the 100km trail is in Karjat. The town, on the banks of the Ulhas river, overlooks the majestic Sahayadri ranges, the Western Ghats as well as the Bhor Ghat.
Participants will form a team of four, who must complete the 100km walk in 48 hours on the condition that the team must start and finish together. The participating teams this year will have an ambitious target of breaking last year’s fastest team record OGS – Jaguar Security’s record of completing 100 km in 15 hrs 44 mins and 50 km record by ‘SG Runners’ in 6 hrs 32 mins.
The first Trailwalker in India was held in Bengaluru in February 2012. A record 339 teams participated. Oxfam India also organizes free practice walk sessions for participants and helps prepare interested employees of corporate partners for the ultimate team challenge. Interested teams can register on the website of Oxfam India Trailwalker.
