Two Abergeldie teams set off from Brooklyn on the Hawkesbury River at 9 am on Friday 26 August for an (almost) non-stop 100 km stroll to enjoy the view over Sydney Harbour from Georges Heights less than 48 hours later – and raised more than $11,201 for Oxfam along the way.

The Abergeldie Greens team of four hardy hikers finished in 202nd place in a time of 27 hours and 33 minutes. Three of the four Abergeldie Blacks stayed the course to finish in 454th place after 35 hours and 21 minutes.

Two of our team members, Mick Boyle and Michael Trumm, were backing up from the Brisbane Oxfam Trailwalk through which they trudged their way on 17 and 18 June. That’s dedication for you.

From all of the walkers, heartfelt (and foot-felt) thanks to those who helped to make these annual events so successful through their physical, moral and financial support.
