The Oxfam Trailwalker is a charity sporting event that involves walking from Endeavour Hills through to Heidelberg Park.
Aside from being one of the toughest physical feats, the walk is one that’s rewarding because it aims to raise money to reduce poverty globally.

Walkers will then depart Mt Evelyn and head on to Lilydale, following a section of the Warburton Rail Trail, before making their way to Croydon. As the trail turns towards the city, walkers pass through Mullum Mullum Park and Valley.
As walkers near the finish, they’ll join the Main Yarra Trail, and after crossing over the Banyule Flats, walkers will finally pass through the Warringal Parklands – and then it will be time to celebrate!
Commemorate your incredible journey with your friends, family and your team as you cross the Finish Line at Heidelberg Park – proud to be part of a fantastic community that’s tackling poverty, together!
There are five start waves for the race as follows: 6am, 7am, 8am, 9am, and 10am. The event utilises a first-in, first-served system with all team registrations. Registration requires four team members over the age of 18, a unique name for your team, a commitment to raising a minimum of $1,600 per team, an estimated finish time, and a fundraising category.
The designated team leader is in charge of completing the registration form, and then all team members will get an email to complete their details. All teams of four are required to start and finish together, which requires training and dedication.
The Oxfam Trailwalker was established in Hong Kong in 1981 and has since become one of the world’s biggest team sporting events. More than $140 million has already been raised from the walks to support Oxfam in fighting poverty.
