What is the Wolf Run?
The Wolf Run is an approx. 10k off-road run through the Warwickshire countryside with a series of obstacles (man-made and natural) located throughout the run. The concept behind the Wolf Run was to re-create the feeling of running in natural terrain - a wild run that would allow runners to experience natural, raw running conditions as far as possible whilst also presenting runners with a challenging, interesting and seriously enjoyable event.
Is the Wolf Run a race/timed event?
The Wolf Run is all about the experience of Wild Running™ - running wild and being 100% involved in the experience. The Wolf Run is not a race; it’s a physical and mental challenge that every Wolf Runner tackles their own way - whether it’s running in a pack or running alone as the classic lone wolf! We don’t use timing chips and if you’d like to wear a watch to time yourself, please make sure it’s water/shock resistant!
How is the Wolf Run different from other off-road events?
Off-road running is becoming increasingly popular and justifiably so - getting off the pavements and treadmills into interesting, challenging terrain is amazingly good for you physically and mentally. We are often asked how we are different from the other obstacle/trail/mud runs: the answer is that we combine the best features of all three types of run!
Our courses are a unique mix of great running trails across open ground and through woodland. There are a series of serious physical challenges using man-made obstacles with the run course also featuring a huge number of nature’s finest obstacles, from lake swims to mud pits, fallen trees, boggy ground, ditches, hills and dense foliage, making the run more organic and recreating a natural, wild run. Every step will test you mentally and physically, taking you back to a primal, instinctive way of running in raw, challenging terrain.
The location is fantastic - stunning English countryside with the run taking place over a private farm estate with natural lakes and woodland. As we have access to the location all year round, we can ensure that the course is always in top condition, with sections created and maintained specifically for the Wolf Run including winding paths cut through willow stands and woodland.
The design of our obstacles is also overseen by a fitness professional with a Masters in Sports Science and years of experience in functional fitness training. This ensures that your entire body is challenged by the design of our course, providing an excellent all-body workout that will leave you fitter, stronger and more confident.
