Inzpire are delighted to be supporting a team of RAF Personnel in their fundraising efforts for Oxfam.
The team, who have named themselves the ‘Inzpired Amateurs’, is made up of four personnel from RAF Benson and RAF High Wycombe. They are competing in the Oxfam Trailwalker; a 100km trek which is to be completed in 30 hours. However the Inzpired Amateurs in particular have made the task even more challenging by aiming to cover the distance in just 20 hours.
The trek takes place in the height of British Summer with the teams setting out on 25th July from the Queen Elizabeth Country Park, before moving through 9 checkpoints to finish at Brighton Race Course on 26th July.
Trailwalker was originally set up by the legendary Gurkhas who this year celebrate 200 years as part of the British Army; because of this heritage, many military teams compete in the challenge.
Money raised from Trailwalker goes direct to Oxfam to support their work in fighting poverty. The Gurkha Welfare Trust also benefits from the fundraising efforts; founded in 1969, the Trust works in both the UK and Nepal, caring for elderly Gurkha soldiers and their widows.
