EVERY STEP COUNTS - Oxfam Trailwalker 2019 - fighting poverty and injustice step by step

31 Jul 2019

In less than 30 days you will take part in Oxfam Trailwalker where you will walk for more equality in the world.

A few useful reminders for the event

We advise against using camping cars or similar vehicles.
We commit to ensuring smooth traffic conditions for all the numerous teams and services (security, organisational and shuttle services) bearing in mind the challenge for the road infrastructure to cope with an event of this size.
Camping cars will only be allowed in the military aerodrome and in front of CRIE (Fourneau Saint-Michel). 
Only a very limited number of spaces will be available.

Access will be strictly prohibited to any vehicles measuring more than 2 metres by  5.5 metres at 4 CP & 5 CP at Mirwart and at 3 WP at Masbourg, 

Each team must collect 1500€ for Oxfam projects worldwide.
The amount must be on the team counter before 30/08.

In order ro help us to organise the event, we would ask you to reply to the following questions by 14 August at the latest.
Please use the online form:

  • Are you having breakfast (+ for how many people)?
  • Do you wish to use the camping area at Saint-Hubert military aerodrome?
  • Does your team intend to run the 100 Km course (over 8 Km/hour)?
  • How many parking spaces do you require for your team at St. Hubert military aerodrome (between Friday evening and Sunday afternoon)?
  • Do your supporters wish to use the free shuttle between Fourneau Saint-Michel and Masbourg as well as between Fourneau Saint-Michel and Mirwart?
