First ever mixed team wins Sydney Trailwalker 2009


OXFAM News Update – Female factor gives winning edge in Oxfam Trailwalker

The addition of Beth Cardelli to the team of Dave Gallagher, Shaun Atchison and Noel Annett has proved a winning combination for the Berowra Bushrunners who are the first of the 500 teams to finish the 100km Oxfam TRAILWALKER Sydney.

The team completed the 100km course from Brooklyn to Mosman in 13 hours and 25 minutes, becoming the first ever mixed team to win what is regarded as one of Australia’s toughest endurance charity events.

The three males were also the first to cross the finish line in the 2008 event, but were unable to claim the title as the fourth member of their all-male team that year had to withdraw during the race.
