Oxfam Ireland Trailtrekker 2009

Well we did it! Our four-man Highlife team undertook a cross-border trek of 100km in under 30 hours, hiking day and night over rugged mountain terrain. We started in Rostrevor, Co. Down at 9.00am on Saturday 26th September, and 100km and 29 hours later, we arrived in Carlingford, Co. Louth at 2.03pm, where we were all but about to collapse, but still somehow managed to muster up one final burst of energy to run through the finish line!

We are delighted to confirm that our team raised a grand total of €3,307, of which €2,183 was raised on our successful quiz night. A very big thank you to everyone who helped, supported, and donated to this cause.
