Running Wild was formed to fill a perceived void in organised, quality trail running experiences for athletes in NSW, with the goals of staging low cost trail runs and to foster, encourage and promote the experience and enjoyment of Trail Running.
Running Wild is keen to provide NSW runners with opportunities to regularly run on trails and where better than in the Blue Mountains National Park. The park covers a huge area and is already known for great races such as the Woodford to Glenbrook, the Six Foot Track and The North Face 100, but there are many other excellent trails out there, just waiting to be run. Our vision is to bring new and exciting trail races to all runners, which is also good for us, as it gives the committee a really good excuse to get out on the trails and run more, to find even better trails to share.
To be allowed to run these stunning trails, we also strive to also build positive long term relationships with key stake holders, such as National Parks and Wildlife Services and the Department of Lands for the benefit of all users. Race entry fees contribute to both of these organisations and help maintain not only the trails we use but all in the Blue Mountains.
Running Wild Trail Association acknowledges that our events are located on the traditional lands of the Darug and Gundungurra peoples. Please treat these Lands with respect and ‘leave only your footprints’.
Ultimately, our aim is to organise to the best of our ability, unsurpassed trail runs that cater for all levels of runners, from elite runner’s right through to those who just enjoy a great day out running on the trails with likeminded friends.
Our events are a great way to meet a fantastic bunch of like-minded people, as well as enjoy some of the best trails in the Blue Mountains. Come along to some runs and experience it for yourself. After each race, there is usually a BBQ where you can get excellent food and then sit back, relax and share the stories of your run with your fellow runners.
It is our hope to see many of you at one of the Running Wild Trail Association events coming soon to a trail near you.
Yours in Running Wild.
