Volunteer at Oxfam Trailwalker


Many thanks to the Oxfam Trailwalker volunteer crew for your support and energy to make this year's event such a huge success! Over 300 volunteers came together to help participants complete their 100km journey. To all of those dedicated volunteers, whether you were at the checkpoints providing encouragement, hot drinks and a place to rest, guiding participants safely through the course as a road marshal, helping set up the trail and light the way, or cheering along at the finish line, your hard work was greatly appreciated. We simply couldn't have done it without your enthusiasm and hard work!

We hope to see you back next year at Oxfam Trailwalker 2015!

Volunteering is a fantastic way to meet people, bond with colleagues or friends, have a good laugh, share in the excitement of Oxfam's biggest fundraising event and most importantly make a difference.

Oxfam Trailwalker is a huge logistical exercise, not just because it spans 100km but because we need people to help out for the entire 36 hours. We could not run the event without our volunteers. Almost 300 volunteers are required in many different roles over the entire event.

You don’t need any specific skills to volunteer for Oxfam Trailwalker. You can do it as an individual or we have roles available that are more suited for pairs of groups. Whether you’re a Taupo local or from the wider NZ community we’d love to hear from you.

As a thank you for your time, Oxfam will provide you with an official event cap, a volunteer handbook, all meals during the weekend and a volunteer appreciation party. Volunteers who are not Taupo locals can receive a 50% discount on their accommodation at participating Taupo hotels and hostels. We encourage volunteers to share transport to Taupo - if you are looking for a ride or a passenger please post an advert on our volunteer carpooling board. Get in touch with us for more details.
