Run in protected areas while raising funds for our collective natural heritage.


About Us

Our Purpose

The WILDSERIES was established to profile South Africa’s spectacular natural heritage while raising funds for endangered species (cranes, rhino, wild dog and the bearded vulture) as well as to support the work of our conservation partners, the Karkloof Conservancy, Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife and SANParks.


All funds raised through all events will be used to enable priority species and conservation work being done by the WILDTRUST in partnership with all the conservation partner agencies.

All WILDSERIES entries are Covid-19 proof and should we not be able to host the event safely on all the stipulated dates, all runners with paid entries will have the option to either roll their entries over to 2023 OR request a refund in line with our refund policy.
