In 2014 a pack of WIP women formed to run The Wolf Run – a 10K wild run to raise money for the bursary. Eleanor Brown, Aisha Hannibal, Caz Ingall, Sue Buckingham, Fan Lebel and Steph Ward trained for months to complete the inagural WIP WOlf Run event. Sadly Steph had to pull out on the day due to ill-health but was a much needed supporter on the day.
Here’s what they have to say:
Pulling on our lycra leggings and our red riding hood capes, the pre race nerves dissipated and it all came together after months of preparation and training.
We started hand in hand, journeying over hay bales, across lakes, under trees, down slides, up hills, tunnelling underground, climbing walls, ran miles and waded through lots of mud. It was epic, and we did it.
What made it amazing was we worked as a pack, helping each other along the way so that we overcame all that we faced and crossed the finish line holding hands.
During the run we were lifted up by the support of the wider pack; our raucous crowd of supporters on the day and through many messages of encouragement.
A MASSIVE THANK YOU from every aching muscle in our bodies for your support, generosity and donations. We raised £2300 and you can click HERE to see all the photos from the day!
We hope this will be an annual/bi annual event so if you are excited and terrified about the prospect of being part of the WIP Wolf Run pack in the future email us at [email protected]
