Welcome to We Run Wild NI
Most of you will know us as Gillian and Gary Connolly.
For those of you who dont know us, we are experienced Ultra Runners. Between us we have run 400+ Marathons including back2backs, Quadrathons and 10 Marathons in 10 days. In the Ultra world we have completed various distances which include 50k, 100k, 50miles, 76miles, 100miles and the Ultimate event- the Marathon Des Sables.
We have always enjoyed the freedom that running WILD brings us - mud, trails, multi-terrain and open spaces and we would love to bring this to you!
What we plan to do:
It is our aim to seek out the most inspiring and rewarding off-road routes, develop races and create an unrivaled atmosphere and race day experience. Our plan is to run events including 5k, 10k, Half Marathons, Marathons and of course Ultra Marathons of various distances from 50k to 100mile and beyond. We will plan our races to take you off road onto trails and cross-country as much as possible and routes will include lanes, trails, forestry, beaches and mountain ranges.
We love finding hidden gems and the history that goes along with it and would love to share this with fellow runners. One thing is for sure; there is always going to be something different to see on our runs!
Why we do it:
We believe everybody is capable of achieving extraordinary things and we belive that we can be part of helping you achieve some of the amazing goals, achievements and experiences that we have enjoyed ourselves and many of you have told us that you strive toward.
Is there anything more enjoyable than the excitement and adrenaline of a challenging, new, off-road race?
Let us help you enjoy the off road experience and open your mind to new adventures.
