Mumbai and Bengaluru, Oxfam Trailwalker is back in India
Oxfam Trailwalker, the fundraising event which has 100km and 50km trails, is back in India. It will be held from December 13-15 in Mumbai and February 7-9, 2020 in Bengaluru.
The event is held in 17 cities across nine countries including Australia, Belgium, France, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Spain and the UK where trailwalkers (participating teams) form a team of four to complete either of its 100km or 50km trail in the shortest time.
Last year, the event saw participation from around 1,600 people from across India and raised over Rs 5 crore to contribute towards Oxfam India's projects on climate change, forest rights, education, health, gender and discrimination in the five poorest states of India (Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Odisha and Uttar Pradesh) for various education and health programmes, to support survivors of violence against women, and to empower tribal communities.
This year, the Mumbai trails will pass through the majestic Sahayadri ranges, the Western Ghats and Bhor Ghat in the quaint town of Karjat in Maharashtra. And, the Bengaluru trails will start from the valley of Nandi Hills near the ancient Bhoga Nandeeshwara Temple and end at Olde Bangalore resort, Tharbanahalli.
Although the registrations for Mumbai Trailwalker have been closed, it is open for Bengaluru and those interested can register their teams on the website trailwalker.oxfamindia.org.
