Abstract

TWALK or Twenty Four Hour Walk is an annual 24h rogaining race organized by the Canterbury University Tramping Club (CUTC). In 2017, the event saw its 50th Anniversary and the CUTC commissioned a documentary to be filmed. Over the years, students and staff of ECE have played major roles in keeping the club and TWALK running. The documentary by Tobias Wulff traces the history and unique nature of the event over the years and may feature current and former staff and students of ECE.
