Frequently Asked Questions

What is included in my registration?

With your registration you’ll receive a 2021 ‘Wild One Run’ shirt, online community & support, and results posted online.

When will I receive my shirt?

In order to not waste any fabric and shirts we decided to place multiple batch orders.

Estimated shipping and arrival times are noted when you register for the run.

DEADLINES

  • Register by August 15th to receive your shirt mid September int ime to kick off the event
  • Register by August 31st to receive your shirt end of September/beginning of October
  • Register by September 15th to receive your shirt around mid October
  • Registration deadline: September 30th – you’ll receive your shirt at the end of the October

Early Bird Registration Deadline is August 15th

If you register by then you will receive your shirt at the middle of September in time for the run given that everything goes well with Canada Post if we mail your shirt.

Any registrations after Aug. 15th will receive their shirt in either at the end of September or in October. It’s not necessary to have your shirt to complete your distance, although we’d love to see pictures of you in your shirt as you complete your distance. You can send us your pictures in your gear to johanna@wilden.ca or share them in the Facebook group that you’ll be invited to once you’re registered.

One shirt is included in your registration. The shirts are made out of 100% polyester and you get the option to choose between three styles:

If you wish to purchase an extra shirt you can do so online in our RaceRoster store for $20/shirt.

When can I run?

Walk, jog or run your distance any time and as many times as you like throughout September 15th-October 15th 2021. Time yourself either manually, with an app or GPS and submit your result online through RaceRoster.

Where do I run?

We encourage you to get outside on your favourite trails. If you don’t have access to backcountry trails, simply choose your favourite running route.

If you live in or near Wilden we’d love to see you complete your distance on the Wild One run course. All routes (1km, 5km, 10km) will be marked from September 15th 2021.

Running in Wilden

All courses will be marked from September 15th 2021 to complete you distance in Wilden’s backcountry if you wish.

Start and finish are at the trail access on the left when driving towards the end of Union Road (North end). Parking is available right in front of the entrance. 

Please keep in mind that Wilden’s backcountry is private property and that you enter the trails at your own risk. Be prepared for challenging parts including steep ascends and descends (especially on the 10km course). Be sure to wear proper footwear and except loose footing.

Do I have to do the full distance at once?

You can, but don’t have to. If you like, break up your distance into smaller increments over several days or complete it all in one go.

Can I participate if I don't live in Canada?

Yes, you can, but we won’t be able to ship any shirts internationally, only within Canada. We would still love to have you participate and support our cause.

How do I submit my results?

Simply head over to our RaceRoster Results Page and submit your time there. If you decided to run your distance multiple times feel free to update your time. You’ll also have the option to submit some photos of your experience, could pre-, during or post-run. We’d love to see your pictures.
