From The Wolf Run website:
The Wolf Run is Wild Running - a unique combination of three kinds of off-road running: mud runs, trail runs and obstacle runs. The only Wild Run in the UK, it’s a hardcore 10k run across raw natural terrain, including open ground, woodland, lakes & thick mud.
Running in a pack, or as a lone wolf, you’ll tackle a series of tough obstacles - both man-made and natural - designed to test your mental & physical strength, skill and stamina. You’ll run, climb, jump, wade, crawl and swim through a course designed to challenge you on every level.
Patrick Tissington has known David Earp, founder of shuktara, for many years. This is what he says about doing Wolf Run for shuktara:
I have to confess I had always sneered at the idea of the Wolf Run. I am now having to eat my words because I have signed up to do it and am genuinely worried about how on earth I am going to finish it. But I needed a goal to aim for so I could ... well anyone who has sat through my lectures on goal setting will know why.
And I decided to make this a fund raising event in aid of the charity shuktara. Set up by David Earp who suddenly gave up running the stall opposite mine on Portobello and went off to make a positive difference to the world. And boy what a difference he has made. I don't have his courage but I can try and raise money for this great organisation. I am told that the school fees for the young adults cared for is £70 a month. Since I'm in the education business, I thought I would try to raise enough for them to study for 6 months.
