Volunteer at Oxfam Trailwalker

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.

Across event weekend, more than 300 volunteers joined 271 teams on their 50km or 100km walk, helping to support communities in the Pacific and donating more than 2250 hours of their time volunteering. We would like to extend a big thank you for their energy and commitment to Oxfam Trailwalker New Zealand 2016. We couldn't have done it without our amazing volunteers and we hope to see you out on the trail next year!
