Wildrun

A Wild Idea

An iconic stretch of coastline, a long-standing course record, and one tenacious, talented runner. That is where this wild journey began.

The Namibia Crossing

Are you seeking a 2019 escape that will quiet every stress element and shift your world view?

5 days, 200km, two African countries, one ancient mountainous wilderness. Welcome to the Namibia Crossing 2019; this is a Wildrun® Africa experience that will test you, and take you to places so far removed from the daily grind that you might never wish to return. Designed to evoke a sense of introspection and exploration, this foot race showcases truly diverse geology, ecology and environment.

Running in Remarkable Rwanda

Our rhythm is good, we are all enjoying the pace, leaping over volcanic rocks in the path, clambering up and down steep, mica-speckled slopes and teetering over wooden bridges that crisscross the canals in the lush tapestry of tea plantations.

Wild Encounters

On the 6th of February this year, a trail running story just about broke the internet. A runner in Colorado fought and killed an 80-pound mountain lion that attacked him on a nature trail in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, wildlife officials said.

Why the Wild Coast?

Ever wondered what running in paradise would feel like? 2019 is your wild year, and the Wildrun® Africa portfolio is your answer. Kei Mouth to Hole-in-the-Wall, The Wild Coast in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa is paradise unparalleled.

Your Wild Year

Yes, it’s time. Time to declutter, unfollow, let go and simplify. Time to discard that which does not serve you, and be true to the calling of your heart. Time for the New Year’s resolutions to be less about counting calories or kg and more about counting blessings and opportunities for growth.

200km through two thousand million years

Run the Wildcoast

As runners, we often talk about the freedom that running brings to our lives. We live for wide open spaces, big skies and those moments where nothing but birdsong filters through the air on a gentle breeze. We plan our adventures around sunrises, sunsets and the simplicity of placing one foot in front of the other for as many minutes or hours as our busy lives allow. There is very little as satisfying as looking down from a mountain peak at bumper to bumper traffic and thinking, I made a good choice here.

Head Above Water

The reality is, our lives have sped up to a point where many of us feel like we are Dabchicks swimming across a stretch of water; trying desperately to maintain a calm appearance with our legs paddling frantically below. We’re bombarded by daily pressure to keep it all together with the vague idea that we’ll take a break, some day.
