Markinson is again proud to sponsor the efforts of CEO Ian Whiting in the Brisbane Oxfam Trailwalker during the weekend of 14-16 June 2013.  This will be Ian’s sixth Oxfam Trailwalker.

Oxfam Trailwalker is one of the toughest challenges in the world.  It involves teams of four walking 100km through the Australian bush within 48 hours, raising funds to help communities around the world overcome poverty and injustice.

Ian is undertaking this epic journey as part of a team named ‘Clinically Insane’.  With a combined age of over 200 years, they say you have to be clinically insane to do what they do at their age. 

We think we might have to start calling Ian ‘Cliff Young’.  In training for this challenge, Ian has walked the equivalent distance of Brisbane to Melbourne.  He also recently completed the Melbourne Trailwalker in 30 hours.

Last year, Ian was one of nine people who successfully completed the Oxfam Trailwalker in all three cities it was held.  This year, the addition of Perth means the Trailwalker is being held in four cities.

Stay tuned to find out if he’s crazy enough to do all four this year...!

If you would like to support this fantastic cause, please make a donation to Ian on his Oxfam page. Every dollar raised is greatly appreciated.
