Welcome to Running Wild’s 2024 and 2025 trail 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 trail 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 trail running and wild running is all about, however if you want to run fast and race, that’s fine too.
Distances in our introductory events range from as little as 1 km in the Baw Baw Snow Gum Run to 10 km in the Darby River Half Marathon and 10 km fun run or a 10 km stage in the Alpine Challenge, 22 km in the La Sportiva Razorback Run or the Santa's Run Mt Buller. 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 options. 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.
Just to give you a taste of the types of great runs we deliver, the great places we run in and the great people who take part – people just like you – we thought we would share with you a glimpse of the Alpine Challenge, our most challenging event but one that also offers runs for all types of trail runners from 10 to 160 km.
