The W.O.L.F (Woods, Obstacles, Lakes and Fields) Run is an innovative off-road 10K run that will provide a unique mix of running trails through woodland, open ground and water, alongside a series of challenging natural and man-made obstacles to test strength, ingenuity and determination.
Runners will find themselves climbing huge fallen trees, wading and swimming through deep, murky water, pulling each other up near-vertical mud slopes and crawling under dense vegetation.
Entering and running in 'packs' is encouraged and for 'lone wolf' runners, our marshalls will provide a leg-up where necessary on the obstacles.
Organiser, Charlie Moreton, says: "We go to great lengths to design original, challenging courses that encourage runners to use their bodies functionally and naturally - running, climbing, swimming, wading and crawling. Our year-round access to the course means that we can build a series of man-made obstacles that ensure a total body workout. The Wolf Run is designed to test experienced runners, but our experienced marshals ensure that a leg up is available to any newcomers to off-road running. The Run encourages participants to work as a team and help each other over, under and through the obstacles - with a few surprises on the way to keep everyone on their toes!"
The WOLF Run is open to all runners over the age of 18, from beginners to experienced off-roaders. The design of each course is overseen and tested by a fitness professional with a Masters in Sports Science and years of experience in functional fitness training. This ensures that the entire body is challenged by the course, giving an excellent all-body workout.
Spectators are encouraged to come along and support the Wolf Runners. The day will finish with an afternoon post-run party, open to Wolf Runners and spectators, with music, good local food (including a hog roast and the all important cake stall!) and a bar.
