|In the woods. There are parts of the track that are a lot more|
arduous than this!
For 100km and 48 hours Bruce Towers will be lugged, by a team of seven sherpas, in the first ever (worldwide!) Oxfam Trailwalker entry with a passenger.
Visit the Oxfam Tralwalker site to sponsor the team and see whether you can make it to the start or the end of the track.
There are quite a number of reasons that I find all this particularly exciting.
- I have not done anything! This was Ben's (son) idea and has been spearheaded, once again, by Parks Victoria. Ben is a sherpa along with a number of park rangers and a state politician, David Southwick.
- The match between TrailRider and TrailWalker is a big thing for Oxfam which leads to them doing a lot of media work. The Age article is a good example.
- Once again we have the great pleasure of working with Storyscape (who made Wild Places) and the 3 minute video is the beginning of a complete production.
