Edgecumbe to host Oxfam Trailwalker 2019

Whakatane will be under the spotlight this weekend as national and international visitors stop in, to take on the 2019 Oxfam Trailwalker.

The annual event, kicking off in Edgecumbe tomorrow morning, will see teams of four walking 50 or 100km distances for Oxfam New Zealand - and involves local, national and international participants.

Fundraising and Events Manager Lizzie Quill says it's going to be a great weekend.
