Running Wild - Great Runs, Great Places, Great People


Welcome to Running Wild’s 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 the 2015 season is the George Bass Coastal Run and Kilcunda half marathon and the introduction of our new Wildside / Expedition run – the Larapinta trail in Central Australia. Check out the details.

Distances in our introductory events range from as little as 4km in the Dinner Plain Mile High Trail Runn to 10km in the Lake Mountain Alpine Marathon or a 14km stage in the Alpine Challenge, 22km in the Razorback Run or the Delatite Dash. In the La Sportiva Series  runs range from 10km  to 44km in the Prom Run and all the way up to 160km  in the Alpine Challenge. All runs offer a range of distances.

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.
