We had such a great response to our call out for participants in the Oxfam Trailwalker, that we’re entering two GP Synergy teams!
Five registrars have signed up for the gruelling challenge. Find out who they are and how to support their fundraising efforts.

This year GP Synergy will have two teams in the Oxfam Trailwalker 23–25 August 2019. One team will take on the 100 km course (48 hr) and the other the 50 km (24 hr) course.

The trailwalker is a gruelling course with a tight time frame for completion. Both teams have set their fundraising targets and we would encourage you to donate at the links below.

Members of the GP Synergy 100 km (48 hr) team are:

  • Dr Joe Kent – GP supervisor
  • Dr Holly Murphy – GP registrar
  • Dr Alice Fraser – GP registrar
  • Dr Dasun Ganhewa – GP registrar.

Members of the GP Synergy 50 km (24 hr) team are:

  • Dr Michael Bonning – GP Synergy Director
  • Sally Lucas – GP Synergy staff
  • Dr Marjorie Cross – GP Synergy medical educator and GP supervisor
  • Dr Annabelle Wood – GP registrar.

To give you an idea of the challenge, the 100km trail begins in Brooklyn on the Hawkesbury River, the trail quickly enters bushland and joins the Great North Walk, then through the northernmost reaches of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and Berowra Valley National Park, along the rugged bush tracks of the Mt Ku-ring-gai, Bobbin Head (where the 50 km trail begins), Sphinx, and Warrimoo trails before reaching Garigal National Park. It then traverses the Harbour to Hawkesbury Walking Track (in reverse) as it follows Middle Harbour Creek, the last section follows the Spit to Manly walk, finishing at Tania Park.

Good luck to both teams!
