Oxfam Trailwalker – walkingtotheend teams

Well we finished the event in about 33 hours back in early May.

A great effort by our teams culminating in a tough final 10 hours or so.  Walking through the night is a real challenge and when it is Very cold, it’s even tougher.

We persevered and actually got to the end early on the Saturday evening but this was thanks to our wonderful support teams.

Using many pain killers, jars of Vaseline, band aids, muesli bars, red bull ( in my case at least) and lots of changes of shoes and socks the end was reached.

The night saw many retirements of walkers due to the cold and distance.

Our teams of walkingtotheend 1 and 2 were brilliant and together we raised over $7000 for such a great cause.
