Ideas for a gift  –  2019 : the year of challenges

At this time of the year you are probably once again racking your brains to find THE gift to surprise your best friend, your sister, your brother or, indeed, your favourite colleague.
We have  a suggestion for a very original gift : invite your friends to join you for Oxfam Trailwalker or Oxfam Peacewalker and pay their registration fee (25 euro per person for Oxfam Peacewalker and 60 euros per person for Oxfam Trailwalker).

A reduction of 50% on the registration fee up to 31st January 2019.
If you register for either Oxfam Peacewalker or Oxfam Trailwalker before 31st January, you will only have to pay 50% of the registration fee for your team. 
So don’t delay, register now on or

Dates for your calendar :
Training walks 2019 - in 2019 we will organise two training walks on the Oxfam Trailwalker course in the Grande Forêt de Saint-Hubert.
•    In February, 27 km approximately
•    In June, 42 km approximately
These training walks are free and are open to all (only the optional shuttle has to be paid for).
This will be an opportunity for anyone who is hesitating to embark on the challenge, as well as for the volunteers, to test the course and to exchange ideas with more experienced  walkers.
We will give more ample details in our next few newsletters.

Oxfam Peacewalker: welcome to families !
At Oxfam Peacewalker 2019, at Messines on 27 April, we are proposing the OxFamily Walker, where members of your family can join you and walk with you for the last 7-8 kilometers of the route or, alternatively,  just join you at the last checkpoint and finish the walk with you. A shuttle will be provided at approximately 14H00 to take family members from the Peacevillage in Messines to the last checkpoint (exact time to be confirmed later), where they can join the walkers  for the last stretch of the walk.
A registration fee of 10 euros per person will be required for those adults who are not taking part in Oxfam Peacewalker. Participation for children is free.

Oxfam Peacewalker : a bit of comfort after all the effort
This year we are offering a barbecue at a very democratic price at the finish of Oxfam Peacewalker, from 15H00 onwards. Welcome to all!

Important information concering the team webpages
For both Oxfam Trailwalker and Oxfam Peacewalker team webpages, the only person who is allowed to make modifications to the webpages is the person who created the page originally. The username or the password should not be passed on to other team members  as this has caused connection problems in the past and you may end up by not having access to your page at all!

Your opinion interests us: merchandise in the colours of  Oxfam Trailwalker?
Some walkers have already asked if we have any Oxfam Trailwalker merchandise for sale (T-shirts, scarves, cups etc.).
Before developing such merchandise, we would like to know if this is a wish shared by the majority of you, so we are proposing a small survey.
This will only take a few minutes of your time to complete and it will give us an idea of your wishes and allow us to target them.
Click here for the survey.

Finally, all of us in the Event team would like to wish you all a very happy end-of-year holiday!
