Oxfam Trailwalker 2014

Arrow Physiotherapy physiotherapist, Andrew Krause, volunteered his time last weekend to support those taking part in the Oxfam Trailwalker. The Oxfam Trailwalker is a gruelling 100km walk completed within 48 hours to raise funds of Oxfam. Andrew had the following to report from the event:

“It was great to see so many generous people brave the torrential weather to take part in the Oxfam Trailwalker Sydney 2014. Despite the cold and rain, spirits were high, and people were able to negotiate the challenging mud laden terrain with few serious injuries. Surprisingly, the conditions did not slow the teams down; this year a new record time was set smashing the previous record by 37 minutes. The most common injuries on the day were lateral knee pain, which is a result of gluteal hip muscles ceasing up. My advice in the lead up for next year’s Trailwalker is train well prior to the event, include tracks with difficult terrain that will adequately challenge you gluteal stabilising muscles.”
