What is it?
On Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th April, the Wolf Run is set to return to Welsh Road Farm in Warwickshire for a weekend devoted to the phenomenon of Wild Running.
Wild Running is a unique combination of three kinds of off-road running; mud runs, trail runs and obstacle runs. The only wild run in the UK, the Wolf Run is a demanding 10K across natural terrain, including open ground, woodland, lakes and thick mud.
The course comprises of ancient woodland trails and deep water crossings, high climbing nets, log walls and the legendary landslide. Whether running as a lone wolf or in a wolf pack, participants will be tackling some of the biggest obstacles in Europe.
Every step of the course is a mental and physical test, designed to take participants back to a primal, instinctive way of running in raw and testing terrain. The course features a series of challenges using both man-made and natural obstacles, from lake swims, mud pits and fallen trees, to monkey bars, ditches and a 100-meter water slide.
The Spring Wolf is not to be underestimated. The backdrop may offer a picturesque landscape but lurking beneath the stunning scenery are icy waters, muddy bogs and woodland winter debris; these will test the courage and strength of each runner.
At the Wolf Run, it’s about more than an Obstacle Course Run (OCR), with participants climbing, jumping, wading, crawling and swimming through a course designed to challenge on every level, earning runners a bespoke Wolf Run tech t-shirt.
