Run/walk 100K where you are (March 27th-28th) or take part as virtual team with your own pack.

Lone Wolf / Solo FAQs

The challenge officially starts at midnight.

However, you can start at any point in the 48 hour window as long as you finish within the time limit.

No, you can breakdown the 100K as you wish within the 48 hour time limit. Please note government restrictions with regards to exercise outdoors where you live.

Visit our all-time results page for details on how to submit your results. Note you can be an official finisher without submitting your results for full verification. If results are verified then there are strict rules to follow so please read before taking on the challenge.

We need to know that you have completed the challenge and we will need GPS evidence for the official leaderboard.

So make sure your watch or phone is fully charged before you set off. Take a battery pack if you are tracking your run on your phone and keep topped up.

For a watch, adjust settings to save battery life and save and sync to another device if the battery is going to run out.

Ultimately don’t panic if this happens. It’s just a challenge, but be prepared and grab some evidence in some way, then keep on running.

Absolutely, in addition to the donation made as part of your entry fee we want to raise even more for FareShare and other good causes.

Yes you can. Send us a message if you are unable to take on the challenge on March 27th and 28th. You can defer to any point in 2021.

Teams FAQs

Teams for the Wolfpack 100 can be anywhere from 2 to 100 in size. You just have to run/walk at least 1K each.

No, you can do different distances to complete the 100K challenge in 48 hours (i.e. team member 1 runs 40K, team members 2, 3 and 4 run 20K each = 100K).

No, the challenge is designed to be virtual. However, where restrictions allow you can run with somebody else.

No, you can all walk, run or bike whenever you’d like to over the weekend.

However, we have found that taking part as a relay team (i.e. only one person moving at any one time) adds something different to the challenge and is a lot of fun.

This is very much a challenge and not a race, but we’d still love to know how you did so we can confirm you have completed the challenge.

Please can the team captains from each team submit the following information when you have finished the challenge:

  1. Team name
  2. Number of legs completed (e.g. if you have 3 entrants and each entrant completes 2 run/walks each that would be 6 legs)
  3. Total time (maths homework, add up the collective time of all your runs and walks, if you want to round up the seconds that is absolutely fine)
  4. Total distance (we know some teams may run/walk more than 100K)
  5. Optional: any photos you are OK for us to use on social media.

No need to submit any GPS evidence (but feel free, if you’d like). Captain integrity!

Submit the above info to one of the following: our Wolfpack 💯 Crew Facebook group or message us via email.

Important Race Weekend Information

Health and fitness check

This is an unsupported virtual event. You should be sufficiently fit and healthy to participate in the race unaided, for your own safety and to avoid any use of emergency services. If you are in any doubt, we recommend that you seek medical advice and/or defer your entry to a later date in the year.

Entrants are advised to stay local and may also consider loops of a route to reduce the distance from home.

Entrants should stop taking part in the challenge if they feel unwell and are unable to continue.

All entrants have been provided with a race number. If you have not received one 48 hours before the event, please contact us for a digital version that you can print at home. This should be worn when taking part.

On the reverse you should enter your name, emergency contact details and any relevant medical information.

We also recommend telling your emergency contact and/or someone else when you are taking part in the event and when you expect to be home.

Entrants are responsible for setting a suitable route to take part in the Wolfpack 100.

Please consider these safety tips for running (Run Britain) and cycling (Think!) if your route takes you onto any roads.

Give way to pedestrians when running to ensure appropriate social distancing is maintained.

Please find links to the latest government information for England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales with regards to exercise.

Each country in the U.K. has slight differences in the rules. All specify that you should avoid crowds and stay local with some specifying the distance from home you can travel. Exercise is unlimited in some countries, but limited to once per day in others. If you take on the challenge with someone else outside your household or bubble, you should still maintain a safe distance of 2 metres when running. Note even with this precaution, spending time together for an extended period of time may not prevent a possible transmission of the virus.

It is your responsibility to read the rules and follow the restrictions in place and these should be checked prior to taking part. If you are taking part outside the U.K. please refer to the government guidance in that country. Please contact us if you need to defer your entry for any reason.

We know that many entrants enjoy listening to music when running, walking or biking. If you do, please continue to be mindful of your surroundings and remove headphones or turn off any music when required. We do not recommend listening to music through headphones if you are on or crossing a road.

All entrants are responsible for appropriate food and hydration while take part in the Wolfpack 100. If you have concerns consider completing shorter loops where you can return to a self-created ‘aid station’.
