It was the Great Lake Relay in Taupō that brought the four members of team ‘Welly Queen’ together. They all met there in February, connected over their love of running trails, and decided to challenge themselves as a team to the 100km Oxfam Trailwalker.
First-time Trailwalker team The Young and the Breathless became the first to cross the finish line at the 12th Oxfam Trailwalker charity event this weekend, completing the 100km course in 14 hours and 32 minutes.
1800 shoes laced and 900 headlamps on, participants of this year’s Oxfam Trailwalker headed off into the hills of Whakatāne before sunrise this morning.
