Welcome to Running Wild
Welcome to Running Wild’s 2015/2016 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 2015/16 season is the Darby River Half Marathon and 9 km fun run at the Prom and the introduction of the Great Alpine Road Marathon and Half Marathon at Dinner Plain/Mount Hotham - Australia’s highest road marathon. Check out the details.
Distances in our introductory events range from as little as 5 km in the Dinner Plain Mile High Trail Run to 9 km in the Darby River Half Marathon or a 14 km stage in the Alpine Challenge, 22 km in the Razorback Run or the Mt Buller Skyrun. In the La Sportiva Series runs range from 22 km at the Razorback and Mt Buller, to 44 km in the Prom Run and all the way up to 160 km in the Alpine Challenge. All runs offer a range of distances and difficulties.
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.
