  • Winners' handmade wooden trophy
  • Wooden medal for all runners
  • T-shirts available


  • Runners must be ready at start line on each hour. If you're still finishing the lap, or too tired to go on, that's the end of your run.
  • If there's a tie on the number of laps completed by the final runners, the winner will be the first runner over the line. Example: two runners left at the start of lap 8 - if neither has completed the lap within the hour, the first one back over the line is the winner.
  • One male + one female winner
  • Whilst we expect the run to go on for many laps, we reserve the right to squeeze the competition in later stages if the wolf pack can't be separated - be prepared!
  • Be respectful of other runners + any public who may be using the area.
  • Have an awesome time - best howls rewarded with high fives!
