Oxfam Trailwalker 2021 – VIRTUALLY TOGETHER

We have great news for you – we have received approval from the government for Oxfam Trailwalker 2021 – VIRTUALLY TOGETHER!

 

We would also like to thank you for joining the event!

 

We are very grateful for all the encouragement and support and we are incredibly thankful that the Oxfam Trailwalker (OTW) community stands as one through the ups and downs.


The event, named ‘Oxfam Trailwalker 2021 – VIRTUALLY TOGETHER’ will be more flexible in terms of format and has been scheduled for 22 November to 12 December. We understand that the in-person event dates (i.e. 19 to 21 November) are preferred, however, given the group gathering ban, COVID-19 measures and the results of our application for an in-person event, we can only arrange a delayed and prolonged event (which spans three weeks). We hope you understand and will join us.

As always, we remain committed to pressing ahead with you and hope to see you on the trail soon!


Let’s stay VIRTUALLY TOGETHER!
 

 

Virtually together!

Remember the time when you started hallucinating after completing stage 4 of the MacLehose Trail during the OTW? How about the glorious moment when you looked back at the trail from the top of Needle Hill? Maybe experiences like these have left you with a love-hate relationship with the MacLehose Trail, but guess what.

It's time to relive them all over again!

The event will end at 9 pm on 12 December. If you do not complete the 100 km trail before then, your team’s registration fee paid and sponsorship submitted will be donated to Oxfam Hong Kong for our poverty alleviation work, and your team slot for OTW 2021 – VT will be forfeited. No refunds will be made thereafter. If your sponsorship does not meet the minimum of HK$5,200, you will also need to raise the rest of it and submit it to Oxfam Hong Kong.

If finishers did not get a medal at the Finish in Yuen Long, they can collect their medal at Oxfam Hong Kong’s office by showing the finishing record of the Adventurous Trailwalkers or two sections of Tenacious Trailwalkers on the TRAILME app. Please refer to the details below. For those teams that have not collected your teams’ participant pack, please come at the below time as well.

Personal health tips

  1. Perform hand hygiene frequently, especially before touching your mouth, nose or eyes, after touching items/surfaces frequently touched by others (e.g. doorknobs), or when hands are contaminated by respiratory secretion after coughing or sneezing.
  2. Wash hands with liquid soap and water, and rub for at least 20 seconds. Then rinse with water and dry. If hand washing facilities are not available, or when hands are not visibly soiled, use a alcohol-based hand rub with at least 70 to 80 per cent alcohol.
  3. Cover your nose and mouth with tissue paper when sneezing or coughing. Do not spit or litter. Use tissue paper to hold your spit. Dispose of the soiled tissues into a lidded rubbish bin, and then wash hands thoroughly.
  4. Please wash hands or use hand sanitizer after using the toilet.
  5. Bring surgical masks, tissue paper and an alcohol-based hand sanitiser (with at least 70 to 80 per cent alcohol) with you.
  6. If you have a fever or respiratory symptoms, do not participate in the event and seek medical advice promptly.
  7. Remove and dispose of masks safely and properly. Do not leave them on the trail.
  8. Buy an insurance plan that covers COVID-19 if needed, and thoroughly read through the terms and conditions.
  9. Avoid touching animals (including wild boars, monkeys, poultry / birds or their droppings).
  10. Participants must be 1.5-meter apart from other teams while on the course, especially when trying to take over other participants.
