It's cold outside, so straight into it with some warm fuzzies...

"Without exaggeration, Wild Things helped me fall in love with running".

"I've been a member of this community from my first trail half to now when I’m training for my first Miler. I wouldn’t be here without this community, and I feel like I’ve watched it grow with me. Words can’t express how grateful I am for Wild Things.".

I'm still buzzing from the many comments like these that we received through the Wild Things survey. If you haven’t caught up with the survey results, check 'em out. Wild Things is all about you, our community, and we've listened.

With the right gear, night running can be fantastic. If you've got your eye on The WILD with its long hours and gnarly terrain you'll definitely want to get in some night time practice.

This WILD Overnighter challenge is designed to help motivate you to train through those long dark hours.

Thanks to The WILD we have a free entry to the Further Faster 50-mile event up for grabs.
