Awesome Auckland Friends walk 100 kms Non Stop for Charity !


🙂 Congrats Guys ~ must confess was a little concerned when you took on this challenge 😐

Awesome Auckland Friends the Waghs,along with their Friends the Maheshwaris,walked 100 kms Non Stop last weekend  for Charity !

They called their Team of 4,Centurions ~ what else !

They trained for it for months and finally walked 100 kms nonstop to complete in 31 and a half hours well inside the stipulated 36 hours ~ perfect recipe to live now to be a 100 !

The Oxfam Trailwalker 100 kms Walk was in the scenic  Taupo Lake Area of New Zealand,around 300 kms from Auckland ~ With a perimeter of 193 kms ,Lake Taupo is the largest lake in NZ and was formed thousands of years ago by a volcanic eruption of Mount Tauhara which rises 3459 feet and is considered yet to be dormant and not extinct

Over 300 Teams took part  and all began the Walk together on Saturday morning,April 6,2013 each with a Support team that tended to their First Aid,Food and even Physio needs ~ some younger teams even ran the distance inside hours ! ~ soon the teams were spread far and wide

The  Waghs are in seventh heaven as they describe the Experience ~ they had to walk Forest Trails through the Night with the Path lit up by their Head Lamps  ~ they’ve promised to send us some awesome photos of themselves,more than the two I took off the fb as above

It was Awesome ! they say ! ~ a once in a lifetime experience ! though Oxfam does hold such Endurance Walks  as an Annual Event in many countries around the World~ will relive this in person when down in Mumbai in May

Again Well Done Guys ! Cheers !

🙂 P S ~ Next time you Waghs are down in India and we again go away together for the weekend,you’ll walk the 100 kms  from Mumbai to Khandala while we take the car ! ~ for if we walk with you (consider this an extinct volcano so no posssibility even otherwise),our stops will at least be early morning Matunga for Idli,Khopoli for Batata Wada ,Panvel for Mcdonalds…….
