The Oxfam Trailwalker Challenge is quite simple – teams of four walk 100 kilometres together within 48 hours.  This challenge cannot be taken lightly, but I stress that anyone who prepares correctly can succeed. 

Preparation means:

  • Educating all team members on how to train
  • Motivating and ensuring all team members do train.
  • Working out all teamwork issues to ensure proper co-operation.
