Four people, One goal, 100km in 36 hours
On April 8 - 10, Whitecliffe Year 3 BFA Graphic Design major Jackie Rosewarne was a member of a team that completed the Oxfam Trailwalker Challenge.
Every year teams of four descend on Lake Taupo to take on the world's greatest team challenge, walking 100km in 36 hours. Not only are teams challenged to cross the finish line together, but are also encouraged to do the last leg in fancy dress. Oxfam Trailwalker is not just a physical challenge, each team must also commit to raising at least $2000 to support Oxfam New Zealand's work.
After successfully completing the challenge, Jackie commented:
It was incredible! Yes I survived; I can't believe I did it. There was one really down point at the 79km mark when I really thought I wasn’t going to pull through! But thanks to my team and other helpful participants I managed to keep going!
