About Oxfam Trailwalker
Oxfam Trailwalker (previously named 'Trailwalker') began in Hong Kong in 1981 as a Gurkha-led training exercise for the army – only soldiers, and only men, joined. In 1986, Oxfam Hong Kong was invited to co-organise the event and it was open to the public. Oxfam Hong Kong took over the event after the retreat of the Gurkhas in 1997. Through the years, Oxfam Trailwalker has become one of the largest fundraising and hiking events in Hong Kong. This year, it has and will be held in 16 cities in 9 countries, including Australia (Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney), Belgium, England, France (Avallon, Vacheresse), India (Bangaluru, Mumbai), South Korea, New Zealand, Spain (Euskadi, Girona, Madrid), and Hong Kong.
