Trail Running Remarkable Rwanda

Wildrun® Africa is a portfolio of bespoke running experiences hosted by Wildrunner. The heartbeat of the 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 geologically and botanically rich Richtersveld desert or the bushveld of Mapungubwe, each Wildrun® is unique, and each a potentially life-changing experience. No markers.  No massive crowds. Just you, your sense of adventure and a truly wild place.

You’ve heard the rumblings. In 2019, we add Rwanda.

“As the first light of dawn appears over the horizon, we are nearing the end of the morning transfer to the start of the final run on our recce adventure through Rwanda.  As we bump and roll the final yards I am emotionally overwhelmed by not only the last seven days of exploring this truly remarkable country, but by the unbelievable final 42km trail run that lies ahead.  One of those pinch yourself moments when confronted by the reality that I’m about to run the ridgeline that divides the source of both the Congo and Nile basins, deep inside the largest swathe of tropical montane forest left in East or Central Africa –  Nyungwe Forest.  It’s a fitting finale to an extraordinary eight-day trail running tour of Rwanda that joins the Wildrun® Africa portfolio in February 2019.” – Owen Middleton, Wildrunner Founder and Owner

From the rim of Bisoke Volcanos’ crater lake in the North, to the mountain primate rich rainforests of Nyungwe in the South West, this guided running adventure takes on the very experiences that make Rwanda so unique in Africa. Unlike the Wildrun® Africa Adventures currently on offer, this is a trail running adventure tour for small, manageable groups. The inaugural tour will run from the 9-17 February 2019 and limited places will be available from 18 July 2018.
