Welcome to Running Wild
Welcome to Running Wild’s 2016/2017 running program. We have put together a series of spectacular runs in some of Victoria’s best national parks. Our motto is
great runs—great places—great people. We do not run “races” as such, we are about the running experience, enjoying the country, experiencing what nature has to offer—weather, terrain and your ability to push yourself and get to know your body and your limits, and the social experience.
That is what running and wild running is all about, however if you want to run fast and race, that’s fine too.
New for the 2016/17 season is the Great Alpine Road Marathon and Half Marathon at Dinner Plain/Mount Hotham - Australia’s highest road marathon. It is our first and only road run and offers some of the most stunning scenery and terrain that you will find in Australia. Another tough run, but oh so worth it.
Distances in our introductory events range from as little as 1 km in the Dinner Plain Mile High Trail Run and Mount Baw Baw Trail Fest to 10 km in the Darby River Half Marathon and fun run or a 14 km stage in the Alpine Challenge, 22 km in the Razorback Run or the Mt Buller Skyrun. We offer a full range of distances in our Mountain and Coastal runs from 22, 36, 44, 65 km all the way up to 100 km and 100 miles in the Alpine Challenge.
If you haven’t tried trail running before we offer some great introductory experiences. If you are a seasoned marathon runner or ultra runner but looking for new experiences these runs may inspire you to look at running with fresh eyes.
