Running Wild - Great Runs, Great Places, Great People


Welcome to Running Wild’s 2014/2015 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 2014 is the Vertical K Series, the Victorian Mountain Running Championships and the Mount Buller Mountain Running Festival. Check out the details. Distances in our events range from as little as 5km in the Victorian Mountain Running Championships and Mount Buller Fun Run to 15km in the Lake Mountain Skyrun or a stage in the Alpine Challenge, to 22km in the Razorback Run, 22km in the Delatite Dash or 44km in the Prom Run, all runs offer a range of distances all the way up to 160km in the Alpine Challenge - a major charity fundraiser. 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 5 runs and some others on the drawing board may inspire you, to look at running with fresh eyes.
