What was Wolf Run 2018?
Wolf Run 2018 was about Wild Running – a unique combination of three kinds of off-road running: mud runs, trail runs and obstacle runs. Wolf Run 2018 was a hardcore 10km run across raw natural terrain, including open ground, woodland, lakes & thick mud. Naturally, the Big Wipes team was up for the challenge.

The concept behind the Wolf Run 2018 was to re-create the feeling of running in natural terrain. Running in a pack, the Big Wipes team tackled a series of tough obstacles – both man-made and natural – designed to test their mental & physical strength, skill and stamina. They ran, climbed, jumped, waded, crawled and swum through a course designed to challenge them on every level.
Apparently, they also had fun at Wolf Run 2018?
The question on everyone’s lips: what could they have possibly used to clean themselves up with?!
How is the Wolf Run different from other off-road events?
The organisers explain this as follows:
“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 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 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.”
