What is the Trailwalker?
The Queen's Gurkha Signals Regiment (QGS) in Hong Kong first started Trailwalker more than 30 years ago as a training exercise to test soldiers’ stamina and teamwork skills. In 2002 Trailwalker UK was opened up to the public via a partnership with Oxfam and has since grown into a major fundraising event for Oxfam and the Gurkha Welfare Trust (GWT). The course record for the 100Km challenge stands at a staggering 9 hours and 50 minutes! (By a team from the Gurkha Rifles).

The statistics speak for themselves......
