New Zealand Team Nordic Walking 100Kms for Oxfam

Nordic Walking News subscribers Peter & Steffi Mueller, Wendy Bowling and Colin Merrick from Tauranga, New Zealand are training hard for the inaugral Oxfam Trailwalker New Zealand Event, which takes place north of Lake Taupo on April 8th-9th.

This is the first time that the event has been held in New Zealand. The team are planning to walk 100kms in 20 hours to raise funds to overcome poverty and injustice around the world. Their target is to raise a minimum of $2,000.

Steffi, who is a certified Nordic Walking instructor says... "We started Nordic Walking after visiting Germany last year where we saw so many people with Nordic Walking poles".

Leki have sponsored the team by providing four sets of their 'Instructor' poles.

Good luck guys... Let us know how you get on!
