Oxfam Trailwalker is one of the largest fundraising sports events in Hong Kong. Since 1986, more than 73,000 participants have raised over HK$365 million to support Oxfam’s various poverty alleviation and emergency relief projects in Hong Kong, Mainland China, Africa and Asia.

It is a seriously demanding event comprising of 100km in a 24-hour time frame. The course profile is either up hill or down across Hong Kong’s beautiful national parks. The weather adds to the physical demands – 35 degrees centigrade and 92% humidity.

We worked with a team from Hong Kong based Credit Suisse (Matt Baker, Hazel Lawrie, Thomas Bloxham and Edward Sanderson). Our brief was to create a range of gear to cope with these unique demands. This pushed us to develop the Zeon Ice Back Shirt. The team used the shirt in training and for the event. The range is now available to all our clubs and is perfect for indoor sports, athletics, gym, rowing and hot weather tours.
