On the 3rd and 4th of June, the Summer WOLF Run returns to the stunning Stanford Hall estate in Leicestershire for a weekend of mud, sweat and laughter. Upwards of 8,000 runners are set to attend the event which combines Woods, Obstacles, Lakes and Fields (WOLF) to create the UK’s only Wild Running™ course.
The 10-km race maintains the fun factor throughout, something that is highly valued by the runners, but the physical and mental challenges of the WOLF Run shouldn’t be underestimated. The course comprises a great variety of manmade and natural obstacles that will push every participant to the limit, including the Mud Sucker – a 40ft long mud bath – and the Landslide – a 100-metre long waterslide described by Facebook followers as ‘the best slide in OCR! (Obstacle Course Racing)’.
The WOLF Run has a distinct festival feel where families and friends are encouraged to join the festivities. With tents serving drinks and food, a giant TV screen, live music and even a ‘glamping’ (glamorous camping) option available for this year’s Summer WOLF, it is more than just an OCR.
A great indication of the customer satisfaction of the WOLF Run is the number of runners who take part in all four calendar events to gain ‘Alpha WOLF’ status, for which they are rewarded with a special edition tech-shirt and a medal.
Charlie Moreton, Founder of the WOLF Run, said ‘At the WOLF Run you’ll climb, jump, wade, crawl and swim through a course designed to challenge you on every level. The personal challenge, the camaraderie, the sense of accomplishment and above all, getting outside and enjoying what nature has to offer makes the WOLF Run a truly unique experience.
‘At the Summer WOLF Run this June, we are particularly excited to be introducing glamping for runners who want that extra bit of luxury when staying with us overnight.’
