T&C’s – Oxfam Trailwalker is a fundraising event to raise money to tackle poverty.
Each team must raise the minimum fundraising amount of $1,600. The start time competition is a fundraising competition which allows teams to choose their start time or start at 6:00am if they raise more than $3,500 (the average raised in 2019). Each start wave will be capped at 150 teams. This is for health and safety purposes and to ensure you have the best walking experience possible. If you have raised more than $0 but are one of the 150 lowest fundraising teams you could be allocated a 10:00am start time. This is because all other start times have been exhausted and we must keep the safety of our walkers as a priority.

* We stagger the starts and allocate equal numbers of teams to each start time in an effort to reduce congestion and minimize our impact on the environment. Should you surpass average fundraising by the deadline you will get allocated the earliest start time (if that is not the time you would like, you will have the opportunity to nominate your preferred start time). Should we have more teams who have raised the amount required to choose your start time than places permit, we’ll then allocate based on highest fundraising teams.
Start times strictly cannot be swapped once they have been announced.
