about the wildrun™

The heartbeat of a Wildrun™ is exploring and experiencing truly wild places on the run. Be it on the Wild Coast of South Africa, the remote mountains of Lesotho, the geological and botanically rich Richtersveld desert, each Wildrun™ is unique and will be sure to leave an indelible impression on your life.

For all our trail running offerings we work exclusively with the leaders in African trail running, Wildrunner. Started in 2007 by adventure runner, Owen Middleton, Wildrunner focuses on pure trail running with a heartbeat born from a lifetime’s passion of exploring wild places on the run.

What to expect. Comfortable accommodation, hot showers and scrumptious food with your luggage waiting for you in your room after each day’s running.
