Saint-Hubert is waiting for you!

21 Jun 2019

Less than 80 days remain before Oxfam Trailwalker kicks off
and this year it will take place in the Grande Foret de Saint-Hubert.

A new setting means new coordination and many things to keep in mind.

How to get to Saint-Hubert and be mobile on-site?


Oxfam Trailwalker departs from the Saint-Hubert military airfield:
Airfield 5/2
6870 Saint-Hubert
GPS coordinates: 50 ° 02'03 "N, 5 ° 26'22" E
Attention: not to be confused with the civil aerodrome of Saint-Hubert, which is right next door.
For those who come by train, take the one towards Rochefort-Jemelle (departure every hour from Brussels).
A shuttle organised by Oxfam will pick you up at the train station and take you to the airfield.
The shuttle schedule will be sent to you shortly.

Supporters: walk with your team!


Can’t wait to support your team and see your friends, colleagues, or loved ones cross the finish line after 100 kilometres?
Be aware that you can accompany them during certain parts of the trail:

  • Between 64km and 71km. Shuttle buses will run from Fourneau Saint-Michel to the Mirwart checkpoint.
  • From the 90km mark to the finish line. Accessible by car via route N89.
     

« I run to fight poverty » 


Do you want to wear Oxfam's colours and spread a clear message about your values?
For €15 you can order your "I run to fight poverty" t-shirt by sending an email to events@oxfamsol.be.
You can also buy it on-site. The t-shirt comes in the following sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL.
Keep in mind that it runs rather large.
 

Call for volunteers


Those who have already participated in Oxfam Trailwalker will tell you that the atmosphere is simply magical!
Oxfam Trailwalker would never be possible without the valuable help of volunteers.
Last year, there were no less than 276.
If you have friends, brothers, sisters, relatives, colleagues, or neighbours who would be interested in participating, fighting in solidarity for a just cause, and enjoying convivial moments with community, don’t hesitate to speak with them about volunteering for Oxfam Trailwalker.
There’s something for everyone: catering, assembly/dismantling, scanning at checkpoints, massages, etc.
We’re also looking for a few specific profiles: an electrician, as well as several doctors and nurses.
This is the link to register as a volunteer, plus lots of additional information.
